Overview

Composite materials such as fiber-reinforced composites, aggregate composites, and natural fiber reinforced composites have been used widely in engineering structures in various industries. Composite laminates, especially fiber reinforced metal laminates (FRMLs) have been used extensively in aerospace structures. Composite laminates are materials that involve some combination on a macroscopic scale of two or more different primary structural engineering constituents such as polymers, metals, ceramics and glasses. This book presents current research from across the globe in the study of composite materials, including the effects of thermo-oxidation on composite materials and structures at high temperatures; damping in composite materials; fatigue and fracture of short fiber composites; and solutions for postbuckling of composite beams
