Composites are highly efficient materials. They are of great importance in energy generation, use and storage. For example: the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which has carbon fiber-reinforced epoxy wings and fuselage, significantly reduces fuel consumption, and the emission-free BMW i3 electric vehicle has a carbon fiber-reinforced polymer frame. These topics are important at a time when climate change and the impact of technologies on the natural environment are of critical importance, and when reinforcements and matrix materials from renewable sources are also coming to the fore. Comprehensive Composite Materials is a one-stop reference work spanning the whole composites science field, covering such topics as: fibre reinforcements and general theory of composites; polymer matrix composites; metal matrix composites; test methods, nondestructive evaluation and smart composites; design and application; and nanocomposites, multifunctional materials and smart materials. Detailed coverage is also given to the development and application of the principles of multi-scale mechanics and physical model-based design methods, and the incorporation of mechanisms of deformation and fracture into predictive design equations that are useful for the design engineer. This hierarchical analysis includes high-fidelity simulation, which leads to the virtual mechanical testing of composite structures right up to the point of failure. New to this edition: Up-to-date coverage of composites technology, including materials, design methods, analysis and manufacturing methods, taking into account the significant advancements in these areas since the first edition was published. Extensive coverage of topics related to nanocomposites, including nanoscale reinforcements such as single-wall and multi-wall nanotubes, graphene nanoplatelets, and nanodiamonds. 85% of articles are newly-commissioned for this edition, with 15% of articles revised from the previous work. Includes up-to-date coverage of important commercial, consumer and aerospace/defence applications, including structural, mechanical, electronic, and medical uses of composites, which will help readers understand how different composite techniques are applied practically Covers new technologies with a special focus on nanocomposites and multifunctional materials, important for many areas, including structures and electronics This updated edition contains approximately 85% newly commissioned articles, with 15% of articles updated from the previous edition
