Description

Composite materials, with their higher exposure to dynamic loads, have increasingly been used in aerospace, naval, automotive, sports, and other sectors over the past few decades. This second edition of Dynamic Deformation, Damage and Fracture in Composite Materials and Structures reviews various aspects of dynamic deformation, damage, and fracture, mostly in composite laminates and sandwich structures, in a broad range of application areas including aerospace, automotive, defense, and sports engineering. This book examines low- and high-velocity loading and assesses shock, blast, and penetrative events. This new edition has been updated to cover important new developments such as the use of additive manufacturing to produce composites, including fiber-reinforced ones. New microstructural, experimental, theoretical, and numerical studies with advanced tools are included as well. The book also features four new chapters covering topics such as dynamic delamination, dynamic deformation and fracture in 3D-printed composites, ballistic impacts with fragmenting projectiles, and the effect of multiple impacting.
