  • Authoritative authorship: More than 40 of the best experts in composite materials of China have devoted themselves to the completion of this book
  • Comprehensive: The most comprehensive book published on composite materials
  • Advancement: Latest advances in field of optical functional composites and intelligent composites are introduced
  • Practicability: Both technology and application examples are introduced which make the book of great instructional value for designers and engineers

In recent decades, composite materials have developed very rapidly and the applications continue to be of increasing importance. Composite Materials Engineering, the three-volume reference book, offers an integrated and completely up-to-date coverage on composite materials.

Vol. 1 provides an introduction and the fundamentals of composite materials, covering reinforcements of composites, polymer matrix materials, textile composites, interfaces of composites and mechanics and the design of composites.

Vol. 2 focuses on several important composite materials and provides detailed descriptions about the properties, the production technologies and the applications of these composite materials, including advanced polymer matrix composites, thermoplastic polymer matrix composites, metal matrix composites, etc.

Vol. 3 mainly focuses on key points and know-how regarding the application of composite materials, including the design and analysis of composite structures, performance testing, characterization and quality control of composites. In the final chapter, there are overviews of several new types of composite materials as well as the recent development trends.

This book will be of value to scientists, engineers and researchers in advanced materials and manufacturing engineering as a comprehensive reference book. It also will provide an introduction for postgraduate students in materials science and engineering.
