About this book


Long-Term Durability of Polymeric Matrix Composites presents a comprehensive knowledge-set of matrix, fiber and interphase behavior under long-term aging conditions, theoretical modeling and experimental methods. This book covers long-term constituent behavior, predictive methodologies, experimental validation and design practice. Readers will also find a discussion of various applications, including aging air craft structures, aging civil infrastructure, in addition to engines and high temperature applications. This book also:

  • Covers a wide range of polymeric matrix composite applications
  • Focuses on the durability and aging of various polymeric matrix composite materials
  • Describes micro-mechanical and multi-scale modeling and simulation techniques

Long-Term Durability of Polymeric Matrix Composites is an ideal book for engineers and materials scientists designing composite structures with long-term durability and damage tolerance requirements.
