Innovation in materials engineering is the key to today's industrial progress. The evolution of lighter, stronger, cheaper materials with lower environmental impact and greater reliability is changing the way things are designed and built. To keep pace, engineers must stay abreast of current developments in all types of materials, from ceramic compounds to metals to synthetic fibers.
To utilize the new materials effectively and safely requires thorough familiarity with the materials themselves and the ways in which they interact when used in combination. Testing and inspection techniques are crucial with new materials whose properties may not yet be fully explored.
This book offers an up-to-date look at the principle types of composite materials and their uses, with a practical focus on nondestructive testing and repair. Special attention is given to the interfaces between dissimilar materials in various applications.
The introduction discusses the major composite families, fibers, matrix combinations, and the methods for strengthening these various materials. Advanced chapters cover:
Working engineers will find this book a useful overview of current issues in the field of material science. Students and teachers in a wide variety of engineering disciplines will also appreciate this practical, contemporary work as a text book or supplementary reading.About the Author:
