  • Failure mechanisms for plates, tubes, panels, noncircular cylinders, sandwich
  • Composite damage from projectile impact, crushing, torsion

The fourth volume of the ASC series on advanced composites contains critical information on static and dynamic composite failure and how it is predicted and modeled using novel computational methods and micromechanical analysis. The book represents a specially edited print version of research selected for its ongoing influence on composite failure mechanisms and originally presented at conferences of the American Society for Composites (ASC).
