Composite materials play a vital role in modern engineering from aerospace to nuclear devices. Computational mechanics endeavours to provide precise numerical models of composites. More recently, it has been necessary to take account of the stochastic nature of their behaviour indicated by experiment. The approach of Computational Mechanics of Composite Materials lays stress on the advantages of combining theoretical advancements in applied mathematics and mechanics with the probabilistic approach to experimental data in meeting the practical needs of engineers.

Meet the Author

Marcin Kaminski teaches theoretical mechanics, strength of materials and computational and numerical methods in civil engineering as the Chair of Mechanics and Materials at the Technical University of Lodz. He has published over seventy articles in peer-reviewed academic journals and several books and has given many conference presentations. He spent a sabbatical leave at Rice University in Texas as the fellow of the Foundation for Polish Science in 1999/2000. He received the John Argyris Award in computational mechanics from ECCOMAS and Elsevier in 2001, the JT Oden Faculty Fellowship in the University of Texas at Austin in 2004 and is a member of IASS, SIAM, GAMM and IACM.

Professor Kaminski's research interests include: probabilistic and shastic methods in computational mechanics of solids, structures and fluids, numerical analysis of shastic reliability in engineering structures, the implementations of probabilistic procedures into FEM, BEM and FDM-based computer programs, computational modeling of shastic aging processes in engineering and applied science, homogenization methods for composite materials as well as the software development for shastic symbolic computations using MAPLE.
