  • Damage mechanisms for FRP, woven and textile composites

Volume 5 of the ASC series on advanced composites contains original and path-breaking recent work on composite damage analysis, using empirical test methods and computational models. This book was developed by the editors as a complement to Volume 4 on failure in composite materials. These two volumes are a great resource to bring the reader up-to-date on failure and damage. The book represents the first appearance in print of research chosen by the editors for its ongoing influence on damage mechanics and originally presented at conferences of the American Society for Composites (ASC).
