The primary objective of this book is to bridge this gap by presenting the concepts in composites in an integrated and balanced manner and expose the reader to the total gamut of activities involved in composite product development. It includes the complete know-how for development of a composite product including its design & analysis, manufacture and characterization, and testing.The book has fourteen chapters that are divided into two parts with part one describing mechanics, analytical methods in composites and basic finite element procedure, and the second part illustratesr materials, manufacturing methods, destructive and non-destructive tests and design.

About the Author
Manoj Kumar Buragohain is a scientist at Advanced Systems Laboratory Hyderabad (India). He obtained his BSc (Engg) degree in Civil Engineering from Regional Engineering College (REC), now, National Institute of Technology (NIT) Rourkela, India, in 1990. He received his MTech and PhD, both in Aerospace Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras in 1992 and 2010 respectively. He is also qualified in the field of finance and he received his PGDFA from The Institute of Chartered Financial Analysts of India (ICFAI) Hyderabad in 2000.
He has over two decades of hands-on experience in design, development and production of composite products and technology development. His primary research interests are in respect of: geodesic and non-geodesic filament winding of axisymmetric and non-axisymmetric components, tape winding, rosette lay-up and contact lay-up. Some of his major design and developmental contributions have been in large size composite pressure vessels, filament wound grid-stiffened composite structures, filament wound tubular structures, ablative liners by tape winding and rosette lay-up, composite rotor blade for wind turbine generators, etc.
He is a life member of Indian Society for Advancement of Materials and Process Engineering (ISAMPE), Aeronautical Society of India (AeSI), etc. He has about twenty papers in and chapter contributions to refereed journals and international & national conferences and edited monograms. His contributions to the field of composites have been recognized and he was awarded Laboratory Scientist of the Year Award (2009), National Science Day Commendation Certificate & Silicon Medal (2007) and DRDO Award for Performance Excellence as a team member (2012).
