Composite Materials, Volume 2: Mechanics of Composite Materials deals with the prediction of the deformation behavior and strength of composite materials. The book discusses the basic concepts in micromechanics, definition of effective moduli, and the influence of the number of fibers through-the-thickness within a single composite layer on the effective properties. The text also describes the exact moduli of anisotropie laminates; the elastic behavior of composites; and the viscoelastic behavior and analysis of composite materials. The elastoplastic behavior of composites, and the application of statistical theories for the determination of thermal, electrical, and magnetic properties of heterogeneous materials are also considered. The book further tackles the finite deformations of ideal fiber-reinforced composites; wave propagation and vibrations in directionally reinforced composites; and the phenomenological anisotropie failure criterion. The text also looks into the photoelastic investigation of composites. Civil engineers, mechanical engineers, aerospace engineers, and people involved in the study of non-metallic materials will find the book invaluable.
