Abstract

With composites under increasing use in industry to replace traditional materials in components and structures, the modeling of composite performance, damage and failure has never been more important. Micromechanics of Composite Materials: A Generalized Multiscale Analysis Approach brings together comprehensive background information on the multiscale nature of the composite, constituent material behaviour, damage models and key techniques for multiscale modelling, as well as presenting the findings and methods, developed over a lifetime's research, of three leading experts in

Abstract

"Completely revised and updated, this book is a new version of Finite Element Analysis of Composite Materials with worked examples rewritten in Abaqus software instead of ANSYS. Based on one of the best-known textbooks on finite element analysis of composite materials, it reflects the state of the art in modeling. The original book will also be updated but will provide ANSYS problems"-- "Preface Finite Element Analysis of Composite Materials deals with the analysis of structures made of composite materials, also called composites. The analysis of composites treated in this textbook includes the analysis of the material itself, at the micro-level, and the analysis of structures made of composite materials. This textbook evolved from the class notes of MAE 646 Advanced Mechanics of Composite Materials that I teach as a graduate course at West Virginia University. Although this is also a textbook on advanced mechanics of composite materials, the use of the finite element method is essential for the solution of the complex boundary value problems encountered in the advanced analysis of composites, and thus the title of the book. There are a number of good textbooks on advanced mechanics of composite materials, but none carries the theory to a practical level by actually solving problems, as it is done in this textbook. Some books devoted exclusively to finite element analysis include some examples about modeling composites but fall quite short of dealing with the actual analysis and design issues of composite materials and composite structures. This textbook includes an explanation of the concepts involved in the detailed analysis of composites, a sound explanation of the mechanics needed to translate those concepts into a mathematical representation of the physical reality, and a detailed explanation of the solution of the resulting boundary value problems by using commercial Finite Element Analysis software such as AbaqusTM. Furthermore, this textbook includes more than fifty fully developed examples interspersed with the theory, as well as more than seventy-five exercises at the end of chapters, and more than fifty separate pieces of Abaqus"--

Abstract

The increased use of polymer matrix composites in structural applications has led to the growing need for a very high level of quality control and testing of products to ensure and monitor performance over time. Non-destructive evaluation (NDE) of polymer matrix composites explores a range of NDE techniques and the use of these techniques in a variety of application areas.Part one provides an overview of a range of NDE and NDT techniques including eddy current testing, shearography, ultrasonics, acoustic emission, and dielectrics. Part two highlights the use of NDE techniques for adhes

Abstract

The third edition of the Dictionary of Ceramic Science and Engineering builds on the heavily revised 2nd edition which, in turn, expanded the original edition by some 4000 entries to include new fabrication, testing, materials, and vocabulary. The proven  basis of the first two editions has been retained but new words and phrases have been added from the rapidly advancing electronic, nanoparticle and modern materials engineering fields. Additionally, all measurements in SI units are given to facilitate communication among the many sub-disciplines touched on by ceramics, ensuring that this publication remains the field's standard reference work for years to come. This extended edition of the Dictionary of Ceramic Science and Engineering ably follows its predecessors as an authoritative resource for students, researchers and professionals dealing with the processing of Materials.

Abstract

Green polymer materials from biomass-based natural resources are of paramount importance in a range of applications, from biomedicine to biocomposites. Indeed, during the last few years there has been increasing demand for green biocomposites obtained from renewable and sustainable biomass-based resources. Plants, grasses, straws, agriculture residues, algae, water plants etc. are among one of the most promising and the most abundant bio-based resources of biopolymers on earth and they are an indispensable component in biocomposites. One of the important features of biomass-based materials is

Abstract

Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs) have progressed from “niche” materials to high performance applications in aerospace, electronic packaging, automotive, and recreational products. This book focuses on the synergistic relationships among processing, microstructure, and properties of metal matrix composites. The authors include chapters on reinforcements, common matrix materials, processing of MMCs, interface characterization and techniques for obtaining interfacial properties, monotonic mechanical and physical properties, cyclic fatigue, creep, wear resistance, corrosion, and applications of MMCs. This, 2nd edition, builds on the text of the previous edition, by adding new and contemporary coverage of nanocomposites, corrosion, new applications, and new characterization techniques such as x-ray tomography and micropillar compression.

Abstract

This volume of Progress in Colloid and Polymer Science assembles original contributions and invited reviews from the priority research program "Intelligent Hydrogels", funded by the German Science Foundation DFG since 2006, with about 25 contributing research groups. In the center of interest of this program and the present book are responsive hydrogels, i.e. hydrophilic polymer or polyelectrolyte networks that are able to respond to environmental stimuli such as changes in temperature, pH, additive concentration or electrical field. The activities focus on different aspects: on hydrogel synthesis, on the modeling and simulation of thermophysical hydrogel properties, as well as on innovative new hydrogel applications as smart materials. The present book summarizes the highlights in the results of the priority program in original contributions and invited reviews.
