about

Carbon fibre reinforced carbon composites form a very specialized group of materials. They may be considered as a development of the family of carbon fibre reinforced polymer composites which are becoming ever more prevalent in modern engineering. Since the early 1960s a large number of so-called 'advanced materials' have appeared on the scene.

Editorial Reviews

The book is remarkably successful in organizing a large array of topics in a coherent, easily accessible format. It maintains a good balance between a reference book and a fundamental treatise on C-C technology - Polymer News
