Composite Materials, Volume 8: Structural Design and Analysis, Part II covers the methods of structural design and analysis. The book discusses the discrete element analysis of composite structures; the concepts of probabilistic design and reliability as it pertains to composites; and the experimental methods for characterizing composites and composite components. The text also describes the state-of-the-art of the analysis of discontinuities, edge effects, and joints in composites; as well as the methodology for designing composite structural components. Materials scientists, materials engineers, and researchers of fiber composites will find the book invaluable.
