Description

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.

Table of Contents

Fibre reinforced polymers; Techniques for manufacture of composites: Manufacturing processes; Finishing methods; Structural design of polymer composites: Methodology and management of a design project; Procedures for designing materials; Structural component design technique; Limit state design method; Joints: Bonded and mechanically fastened joints; Case studies.
