Summary and Info
Students and practitioners have relied on this book for years to learn about the basics of composites manufacturing. Building upon the solid foundation of the First Edition, this revised and expanded book describes recent advances, adding key information, case studies, and examples that will broaden knowledge of composites materials and manufacturing methods. The first focus of this text is on materials. Several major chapters are devoted to describing the basic materials that are put together to create composite structures. The book simply and clearly presents the details of why composite materials behave the way they do. Thus composites designers will gain an understanding of the causes of material performance, allowing them a wider choice of materials than might otherwise be possible. Secondly, the book describes composites manufacturing methods, providing tips for getting the best results that weigh the required material properties against cost and production efficiency.
