This edition has been greatly enlarged and updated to provide both scientists and engineers with a clear and comprehensive understanding of composite materials. In describing both theoretical and practical aspects of their production, properties and usage, the book crosses the borders of many disciplines. Topics covered include: fibres, matrices, laminates and interfaces; elastic deformation, stress and strain, strength, fatigue crack propagation and creep resistance; toughness and thermal properties; fatigue and deterioration under environmental conditions; fabrication and applications. Coverage has been increased to include polymeric, metallic and ceramic matrices and reinforcement in the form of long fibres, short fibres and particles. Designed primarily as a teaching text for final-year undergraduates in materials science and engineering, this book will also interest undergraduates and postgraduates in chemistry, physics, and mechanical engineering. In addition, it will be an excellent source book for academic and technological researchers on materials.

'... this second edition has returned the book to the top of my recommended reading list for the students on our BEng (Honours) Composite Materials Engineering degree. Given the low (11%) price increase relative to the paperback first edition, this book is now even better value at the new price, and should be available to all practising materials scientists/composite engineers and in the libraries of all universities where a materials science degree is taught.' John Summerscales, Composites Manufacturing
"..this book provides a correct and comprehensive description of an advanced area of material science and technology. It may be recommended to all types of readers interested in understanding the nature of advanced materials....The book is clearly written and well illustrated and can be understood by readers with different backgrounds and levels of qualification." Professor Fedor A. Kuznetsov, Materials Research Bulletin
