The third edition of Krishan Chawla's widely used textbook, Composite Materials, offers integrated and completely up-to-date coverage of composite materials. The book focuses on the triad of processing, structure, and properties, while providing a well-balanced treatment of the materials science and mechanics of composites. In this edition of Composite Materials, revised and updated throughout, increasing use of composites in industry (especially aerospace and energy) and new developments in the field are highlighted. There is a new chapter on non-conventional composites, which covers polymer, metal and ceramic matrix nanocomposites, self-healing composites, self-reinforced composites, biocomposites and laminates made of metals and polymer matrix composites. The third edition, featuring all figures in color, also includes new solved examples and problems as well as increased coverage of: Carbon/carbon brakes. Composites for civilian aircraft and jet engines. Second generation high-temperature superconducting composites. Composites for use in windmill blades. WC/metal particulate composites. Examples of practical applications in various fields are given throughout the book, and extensive references to the literature are provided. The book is intended for use in graduate and upper-division undergraduate courses, and as a reference for the practicing engineers and researchers in industry and academia.

Strengthening Design of Reinforced Concrete with FRP establishes the art and science of strengthening design of reinforced concrete with fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) beyond the abstract nature of the design guidelines from Canada (ISIS Canada 2001), Europe (FIB Task Group 9.3 2001), and the United States (ACI 440.2R-08). Evolved from thorough class notes used to teach a graduate course at Kansas State University, this comprehensive textbook: Addresses material characterization, flexural strengthening of beams and slabs, shear strengthening of beams, and confinement strengthening of columns Discusses the installation and inspection of FRP as externally bonded (EB) or near-surface-mounted (NSM) composite systems for concrete members Contains shear design examples and design examples for each flexural failure mode independently, with comparisons to actual experimental capacity Presents innovative design aids based on ACI 440 code provisions and hand calculations for confinement design interaction diagrams of columns Includes extensive end-of-chapter questions, references for further study, and a solutions manual with qualifying course adoption Delivering a detailed introduction to FRP strengthening design, Strengthening Design of Reinforced Concrete with FRP offers a depth of coverage ideal for senior-level undergraduate, master’s-level, and doctoral-level graduate civil engineering courses.

Updated and improved, Stress Analysis of Fiber-Reinforced Composite Materials, Hyer's work remains the definitive introduction to the use of mechanics to understand stresses in composites caused by deformations, loading, and temperature changes. In contrast to a materials science approach, Hyer emphasizes the micromechanics of stress and deformation for composite material analysis. The book provides invaluable analytic tools for students and engineers seeking to understand composite properties and failure limits. A key feature is a series of analytic problems continuing throughout the text, starting from relatively simple problems, which are built up step-by-step with accompanying calculations. The problem series uses the same material properties, so the impact of the elastic and thermal expansion properties for a single-layer of FR material on the stress, strains, elastic properties, thermal expansion and failure stress of cross-ply and angle-ply symmetric and unsymmetric laminates can be evaluated. The book shows how thermally induced stresses and strains due to curing, add to or subtract from those due to applied loads.Another important element, and one unique to this book, is an emphasis on the difference between specifying the applied loads, i.e., force and moment results, often the case in practice, versus specifying strains and curvatures and determining the subsequent stresses and force and moment results. This represents a fundamental distinction in solid mechanics.
