Handbook of Polymer Composites for Engineers

Edited by

  • L C Hollaway, University of Surrey, UK

This book introduces the engineer to fibres and polymer matrices, which are the components of the polymer composites for structural engineering. The authors also provide a simple guide, in tabular form, to the principal fabrication techniques, the basic design formulae, and the methods for structural composites systems and connections.
