Description

Creep and Fatigue in Polymer Matrix Composites, Second Edition, updates the latest research in modeling and predicting creep and fatigue in polymer matrix composites. The first part of the book reviews the modeling of viscoelastic and viscoplastic behavior as a way of predicting performance and service life. Final sections discuss techniques for modeling creep rupture and failure and how to test and predict long-term creep and fatigue in polymer matrix composites.

Key Features

  • Reviews the latest research in modeling and predicting creep and fatigue in polymer matrix composites
  • Puts a specific focus on viscoelastic and viscoplastic modeling
  • Features the time-temperature-age superposition principle for predicting long-term response
  • Examines the creep rupture and damage interaction, with a particular focus on time-dependent failure criteria for the lifetime prediction of polymer matrix composite structures that are illustrated using experimental cases

Readership

Researchers in industry and academia, and PhD students wishing to keep up to date on information about fatigue behavior and modeling of composite materials; researchers, engineers and graduate students who work in the area of fatigue of composite materials
