This five-volume set of titles focuses on advanced characterization techniques used for the analysis of composite materials developed from natural fibre/ biomass, synthetic fibres and a combination of these materials used as fillers and reinforcements to enhance materials performance and utilization in automotive, aerospace, construction and building components.

The books provide detailed information on failure analysis, mechanical and physical properties, structural health monitoring, durability and life prediction, modelling of damage processes of natural fibre, synthetic fibres, and natural/natural, and natural/synthetic fibres hybrid composites. They will act as a detailed reference resource to encourage future research in natural fiber and hybrid composite materials, which is much in demand due to the need for more sustainable, recyclable, and eco-friendly composites in a broad range of different application fields.

Written by leading experts in the field and covering composite materials developed from different natural fibers and their hybridization with synthetic fibers, the chapters provide cutting-edge up-to-date research on the characterization, analysis and modelling of composite materials.

Volume 5: Modelling of damage processes in natural/synthetic and hybrid composite materials

Finite element and damage modeling of natural fibres, synthetic fibres and hybrid composite materials are covered in this book using up to date techniques in aerospace, automotive and construction applications.
