The physical properties of composite materials

  • D. K. Hale
Review

Abstract

In this review, the physical properties of composite materials are discussed; however, discussion of the mechanical properties has been excluded except when necessary for the consideration of properties such as thermal expansion or swelling and shrinkage. One of the main aims in the review has been to show how the theoretical and experimental information that is already available may be used (a) to design and construct composite materials with predetermined physical properties and (b) to ensure that the physical properties of composite materials are properly measured and properly defined.

Keywords

Polymer Mechanical Property Shrinkage Thermal Expansion Composite Material 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
