Additive Manufacturing of Continuous Fiber Reinforced Polymer Composites covers the additive manufacturing of continuous fiber reinforced polymer composites (CFRPCs), discussing their materials, mechanical behaviors, structure, process, performance, and application. The raw materials involved, manufacturing processes for specific CFRPCs (thermoplastic, thermosetting, self-reinforcing), modeling, design, and failure analysis of these materials are each covered at length. An entire chapter is dedicated to the performance of these materials based on their structure and design, with lightweight composite structure, shape-morphing composite structure, and electromagnetic wave manipulating structure each studied. Embedded sensing by CFRPCs, mechanical metamaterials, and the applications of CFRPCs in aerospace, consumer products, and industrial tooling are each covered as well.

Advanced Textile Structural Composites Forming: Characterisation, Modelling, and Simulation comprehensively describes the influence of fiber/fabric architectures and properties on composites forming, along with their deformability and structural optimization, covering the latest advances in the composites forming field. Part one reviews textile reinforcement architectures and discusses the forming behaviors of important 2D and 3D fabrics. Part two discusses numerical models to conduct simulation analysis of different structural composites forming at mesoscopic and macroscopic scales, in particular, 3D preforms with through-the-thickness yarns.Part three looks at the latest developments in the relationship between forming and other steps in composite manufacturing, such as resin injection, and automated fiber placement (AFP) and the effects on certain mechanical properties, such as structural damage and impact resistance. The book will be an essential reference for academic researchers, industrial engineers and materials scientists working with the manufacture and design of fiber-reinforced composite materials.
Construction Materials and Their Properties for Fire Resistance and Insulation covers the properties of novel types of concrete and other more conventional building materials in fire scenarios. The volume also stands out as an invaluable reference resource for its relevance to varied audiences both in academia and industry, spanning materials science, civil and structural engineering, and fire safety engineering. Ensuring buildings are fire safe starts at the very beginning of planning new builds or renovations. Hence, it's essential, in fact, that the right materials are chosen not only according to their load-bearing capabilities but also their susceptibility to decay and fire resistance.

Progressive Collapse Analysis of Concrete-filled Steel Tubular Structures looks at quantitative design, namely direct design; catenary action plays a critical role in resisting progressive collapse. After the failure of structural column due to abnormal loads, such as explosion, fire or vehicle strikes, the loads acting on the damaged column tend to be redistributed through the beams connected to the damaged column. Catenary action would form in the beams and beam-column joint to resist vertical loads. The failure of beam-column joint would prevent the forming of catenary action, which would initiate local collapse, even the progressive collapse of structures.Even though a few studies had been conducted on the progressive collapse resistance of the RC and steel structures with brace members, the study on the effect of tensile steel brace on the collapse resistance of composite frame with CFST (Concrete-filled Steel Tubular Structures) columns has been rarely reported/examined.
