This state-of-the-art volume covers a wide range of subjects including micromechanical characterization, stress, failure, durability and perforation analysis, failure mechanisms, mechanical properties of composites and nanocomposite multilayers, nondestructive evaluation, metal matrix and oxide/oxide composites, instability analysis of cylindrical shells, design of composite joints, sandwich structures, manufacturing of structural components by resin transfer molding. Many applications of composite materials are also covered, including the design and analysis of a pedestrian bridge composed of a concrete bridge and truss girders made of IPC sandwich panels, strengthening of structures and patch repair of aircraft components. Written by leading experts in the field, the book contains thirty-one papers presented at the symposium on "Recent Advances in Composite Materials", which was organized in honor of Professor S.A. Paipetis at the Democritus University of Thrace, in Greece, June 12-14, 2003. The book presents a thorough review of the latest problems and applications of composite materials. Recent Advances in Composite Materials is a vital supplement and reference source for researchers, practicing engineers and students.
