  • New research on nanofibers, preforms, advanced braiding, multifunctional composites
  • Useful design information and data for all phases of textile composites development
  • Multiscale analysis, damage prediction, ballistics testing, mechanical design
  • Civil and military, structural and load-bearing applications

This 578-page book is an original and important collection of over 65 never previously published investigations in the fast-growing materials science field of textile composites. New work is presented under the following subject areas: mechanical design, modeling, advanced manufacturing processes, characterization of preforms, nanofibers and composites, mechanical/thermal behavior, textile composites and impact, numerical methods and simulation, and natural fibers. Chapters prepared for the book were presented initially at the tenth biennial Texcomp meeting, held in Lille, France, October 2010.
