Overview

This textbook makes use of the popular computer program MATLAB as the major computer tool to study mechanics of composite materials. It is written specifically for students in engineering and materials science, examining step-by-step solutions of composite material mechanics problems using MATLAB. Each of the 12 chapters is well structured and includes a summary of the basic equations, MATLAB functions used in the chapter, solved examples and problems for students to solve. The main emphasis of Mechanics of Composite Materials with MATLAB is on learning the composite material mechanics computations and on understanding the underlying concepts. The solutions to most of the given problems appear in an appendix at the end of the book.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"Voyiadjis and Kattan have written an exercise book for the use of the computer package MATLAB and they demonstrate the use of MATLAB in selected simple fields of Mechanics of Composite Materials. … it is useful for students who like to receive an introduction into MATLAB and to connect the solution of problems using MATLAB with the step-by-step solutions of simple composite material problems." (Johannes Altenbach, Zeitschrift für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik, Vol. 86 (6), 2006)
