Clear, concise, and complete, [it] is an excellent up-to-date introduction to fiber composite materials The first edition of this book came out inoffering an integrated cov erage of the field of composite materials.
Patel for help with the figures in this edition. In addition, I have added a new chapter called nonconventional composites. The second edition follows the same format as the first one, namely, a well-balanced treatment of materials and mechanics aspects of composites, with due recognition of the importance of the processing.
I am sorry that it took me such a long time to prepare the second edition. Selected pages Page There are some new chapters, and others have been brought up-to-date in light of the extensivework done in the decade since publication of the first edition.

Among these are the following: Science and Engineering SpringerLink: Chawla Kevlar laminate laminated composite layer liquid load longitudinal matrix materials melting metal matrix composites microstructure MMCs molecular obtained orientation oxide particle plane PMCs polyethylene polyimide polymer polymer matrix polymeric preform prepregs ratio reaction resin Schematic shear stress shown in Figure shows silicon carbide stiffness strain structure superconductors technique tensile strength tensile stress thermal expansion thermal stresses thermoplastic thermoset toughness transverse whiskers Young’s modulus.
Besides the large-scale applications in the aerospace industry, there mqterials been impressive developments in other fields such as automotive, sporting goods, super- conductivity, etc. Focusing on the relationship between structure and properties, it provides a well-balanced treatment of the mechanics and the materials science of composites, The hcawla edition follows the same format as the first one, namely, a well-balanced treatment of materials and mechanics aspects of composites, with due recognition of the importance of the processing.
This updated and enlarged third edition of a widely used text offers an integrated and completely up-to-date coverage of composite materials. My library Help Advanced Book Krshan. I owe a special debt of gratitude to my wife, Nivi, for being there all the time.
Extensive use is made of micrographs and line drawings to emphasize the importance of of processing, microstructure, and properties in composite materials. Cha Limited preview – The text presents a detailed description of how the various reinforcements such as, glass, polyethylene, aramid, carbonthe materials in which they are embedded ceramics, metals, polymersand of the interfaces between them, control the properties of the composite materials at both the micro- and macro-levels.
The third edition has been thoroughly updated and has a vast amount of new material, including plenty of new exercises and illustrations.
