Description

Creep is the tendency of materials to deform when subjected to long-term stress, particularly when exposed to heat. Fatigue phenomena occur when a material is subjected to cyclic loading, causing damage which may progress to failure. Both are critical factors in the long-term performance and reliability of materials such as polymer matrix composites which are often exposed to these types of stress in civil engineering and other applications. Creep and Fatigue in Polymer Matrix Composites, Second Edition updates the latest research in modelling and predicting creep and fatigue in polymer matrix composites.

The first part of the book reviews the modelling of viscoelastic and viscoplastic behaviour as a way of predicting performance and service life. Part two discusses techniques for modelling creep rupture and failure. The final part of the book discusses ways of testing and predicting long-term creep and fatigue in polymer matrix composites.

Key Features

  • Reviews the latest research in modelling and predicting creep and fatigue in polymer matrix composites
  • A specific focus on viscoelestic and viscoplastic modelling features the time-temperature-age superposition principle for predicting long-term response
  • Creep rupture and damage interaction is examined with particular focus on time-dependent failure criteria for lifetime prediction of polymer matrix composite structures illustrated using experimental cases

Readership

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