About this book

This book describes recent research findings on response and integrity of thick section composite and sandwich structures. In particular, it deals with these structures for marine applications under static and dynamic loads such as shock and slamming loads in severe sea environment including sea water, temperature extremes, hydrostatic pressure and Arctic conditions. Three-dimensional constitutive equations and failure criteria for structural response and integrity are considered. 

The book serves as an excellent repository of major advances in research on response and integrity of composite and sandwich structures made through research grants sponsored by the U.S. Office of Naval Research in the past decade. 

  • Collects major advances in response and integrity research;
  • Emphasizes phenomena within severe environments;
  • Illustrates underwater fluid-structure interactions, shock/blast loads, and slamming loads.
