Overview

The principal aim of this book is to provide the basis of calculations concerned with composite structures, using continuum mechanics to facilitate the treatment of more elaborate theories. This theoretical treatment deals with individual layers in laminated composites, both of anisotropic and orthotropic materials, discussing the basic laws that govern mixtures. Multi-layer plates are then considered, followed by a description of beam behaviour under tension compression loading, shear deformation and bending, vibration and buckling. This book is intended for advanced students and practitioners involved in mechanics, mechanical structures and systems, and for those with a particular interest in composite structures.
