Presenting a new set of 125 solved problems and projects to supplement the Examples and Exercises available in the textbook Introduction to Composite Materials Design, CRC Press (2011). This is a companion to that textbook, with frequent cross-referencing guiding the reader to the equations, figures, tables, and specific sections of the textbook relevant for understanding every part of the solution to each of the 125 problems. This workbook does not contain solutions for the Exercises at the end of the chapters in the textbook. Instead, this workbook offers a completely new set of problems, accompanied by detailed step-by-step solutions. These include additional explanations, new figures, and new references to popular design handbooks, material property data, and other sources from the literature. As well as solved problems, this workbook features several complete term-paper ideas in Chapters 2 (Materials) and 3 (Processing), including a brief introduction to the solution of each term-paper, and a few citations as a starting point for further study. The Appendix contains a number of project ideas challenging enough to be assigned as semester-long team projects.At the end of each chapter, additional challenge exercises with simple answers, instead of full detailed solutions, present an additional opportunity for the reader to master the subject. Most problems are solved by hand, showing every step, with all numerical values substituted into equations from the textbook, ending with the numerical answer to the problem. Wherever computer code is helpful for completing the calculations, the code has been written and displayed using the free, open source language Scilab(TM), similar to MATLAB(R). A few problems are also solved using the free on-line application CADEC (http://cadec-online.com).Contents Introductory ProblemsMaterials ProjectsProcessing ProjectsMicromechanics ProblemsPly Mechanics ProblemsMacromechanics ProblemsStrength ProblemsDamage ProblemsTextile-reinforced composite ProblemsBeam ProblemsPlate and Stiffened Panel ProblemsShell ProblemsStrengthening of Reinforced Concrete ProblemsBibliography
Designing structures using composite materials poses unique challenges, especially due to the need for concurrent design of both material and structure. Students are faced with two options: textbooks that teach the theory of advanced mechanics of composites, but lack computational examples of advanced analysis, and books on finite element analysis that may or may not demonstrate very limited applications to composites. But there is a third option that makes the other two obsolete: Ever J. Barbero's Finite Element Analysis of Composite Materials Using ANSYS®, Second Edition. The Only Finite Element Analysis Book on the Market Using ANSYS to Analyze Composite Materials. By layering detailed theoretical and conceptual discussions with fully developed examples, this text supplies the missing link between theory and implementation. In-depth discussions cover all of the major aspects of advanced analysis, including three-dimensional effects, viscoelasticity, edge effects, elastic instability, damage, and delamination. This second edition of the bestseller has been completely revised to incorporate advances in the state of the art in such areas as modeling of damage in composites. In addition, all 50+ worked examples have been updated to reflect the newest version of ANSYS. Including some use of MATLAB®, these examples demonstrate how to use the concepts to formulate and execute finite element analyses and how to interpret the results in engineering terms. Additionally, the source code for each example is available to students for download online via a companion website featuring a special area reserved for instructors. Plus a solutions manual is available for qualifying course adoptions. Cementing applied computational and analytical experience to a firm foundation of basic concepts and theory, Finite Element Analysis of Composite Materials Using ANSYS, Second Edition offers a modern, practical, and versatile classroom tool for today's engineering classroom.
In 1997, Dr. Kaw introduced the first edition of Mechanics of Composite Materials, receiving high praise for its comprehensive scope and detailed examples. He also introduced the groundbreaking PROMAL software, a valuable tool for designing and analyzing structures made of composite materials. Updated and expanded to reflect recent advances in the field, this Second Edition retains all of the features -- logical, streamlined organization; thorough coverage; and self-contained treatment -- that made the first edition a bestseller. The book begins with a question-and-answer style introduction to composite materials, including fresh material on new applications. The remainder of the book discusses macromechanical analysis of both individual lamina and laminate materials; micromechanical analysis of lamina including elasticity based models; failure, analysis, and design of laminates; and symmetrical and nonsymmetrical beams (new chapter). New examples and derivations are included in the chapters on micromechanical and macromechanical analysis of lamina, and the design chapter contains two new examples: design of a pressure vessel and design of a drive shaft. The author also adds key terms and a summary to each chapter. The most current PROMAL software is available via the author's often-updated Web site, along with new multiple-choice questions. With superior tools and complete coverage, Mechanics of Composite Materials, Second Edition makes it easier than ever to integrate composite materials into your designs with confidence. For instructions on downloading the associated PROMAL software, please visit http://www.autarkaw.com/books/composite/promaldownload.html.
The primary objective of this book is to bridge this gap by presenting the concepts in composites in an integrated and balanced manner and expose the reader to the total gamut of activities involved in composite product development. It includes the complete know-how for development of a composite product including its design & analysis, manufacture and characterization, and testing.The book has fourteen chapters that are divided into two parts with part one describing mechanics, analytical methods in composites and basic finite element procedure, and the second part illustratesr materials, manufacturing methods, destructive and non-destructive tests and design.
Maintaining the interdisciplinary perspective of the first edition, this reference and text provides comprehensive discussions of all aspects of fiber-reinforced composites, including materials, mechanics, properties, test methods, manufacturing and design. Written from a conceptual point of view and emphasizing fundamentals, the second edition of Fiber Reinforced Composites offers updated and expanded sections including: fibers and matrix, including thermoplastic matrices; discontinuous fibers and laminated structures; static mechanical properties, fatigue properties and damage tolerance; resin flow, bag molding, filament winding and resin transfer molding; and environmental effects.
