Volume 1: Dynamic Effects in Composites

First volume in the American Society for Composites' Series on Advances in Composite Materials

Editor: Dahsin Liu, Michigan State University

Managing Editor: Michael W. Hyer

ISBN: 978-1-60595-072-3, ©2012, 306 pages, 6×9, Soft cover

  • High-impact, high-velocity and high-pressure testing, analysis and models
  • Fabrics, FRP, textiles, nanocomposites, sandwich plates, panels, crash boxes

This bound edition presents multiple investigations into dynamic loading’s effects on composite materials. With approaches ranging from weight drop to high-velocity and high-impact testing, as well as FEM and other analytic techniques, leading researchers explain damage, delamination and other effects in a variety of composites types and configurations. The latter include textiles, fabrics, laminates, self-healing laminates, sandwich panels, crash boxes and engine/turbine blades with applications in aerospace, automotive and energy. The volume is the first in the American Society for Composites Series on Advances in Composite Materials under the general editorship of Michael Hyer of Virginia Tech. Contributions on dynamic loading selected for this volume and others in the series are edited and updated versions of ASC presentations made during the past nine years and until now available only via CD-ROM. Keywords include: multi-parameter approach, performance characterization, electrified organic matrix, penetration modeling, ice impact, space debris, engine containment, self-healing CFRP, failure criteria, explosives, blast resistance, crush response.
