Engineering Composite Materials

The book by Bryan Harris provides readers with a basic understanding of the material engineering science as well as the engineering applications of composite materials. It explains how composite materials, with their advantages of high strength with stiffness, together with low weight and other desirable properties are formed and discusses the nature of the different types of reinforcement and matrix – and their interaction. The book also includes the methods of production, examples of typical applications and essential data.

This book will be useful to undergraduates on materials engineering courses and postgraduates beginning work on composites research projects. It covers all major types of composites and practical applications in aerospace,  bio-engineering, electrical engineering, automotive, marine engineering, and sports.
