Release Date: 2015-02-09

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 ( Introductory ProblemsMaterials ProjectsProcessing ProjectsMicromechanics ProblemsPly Mechanics ProblemsMacromechanics ProblemsStrength ProblemsDamage ProblemsTextile-reinforced composite ProblemsBeam ProblemsPlate and Stiffened Panel ProblemsShell ProblemsStrengthening of Reinforced Concrete ProblemsBibliography

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.

Multifunctional Composites

Author: Ever J. Barbero
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
ISBN: 151680452X
Release Date: 2015-09-09
Genre: Composite materials

Multifunctional composites include all composites which provide more than one property, or functionality, whether specifically designed or modified from existing designs. Although traditional polymer matrix composites have many useful properties including stiffness, strength, and durability, these often involve tradeoffs such as poor acoustic damping and low electrical conductivity. By designing multifunctional composites, new and enhanced functionalities can complement the typical high-stiffness and high-strength densities of composites. Furthermore, multifunctional composites can feature entirely original functionalities, such as self-healing and microvascular transport, which do not exist in classical composites. Among the shortcomings of traditional composites are lower conductivity and higher contact resistance than aluminum. This complicates efforts to provide aircraft with shielding, grounding, and protection from lighting strikes. Laminated composites are also susceptible to damage when subjected to low velocity impact, resulting in reduced compression-after-impact (CAI) strength. In applications such as aircraft, rotorcraft, windmills, and missiles, erosion by rain and sand roughens surfaces of classical composites, reducing aerodynamic performance and optical and radiation transmission. In addition, traditional composites' high stiffness-to-weight ratio facilitates the propagation of acoustic and mechanical vibration, leading to passenger discomfort and even mechanical damage. Innovative materials that can mitigate these shortcomings are thoroughly described in this book-from design to application. Learn how self-healing composites can remedy many types of damage, including intralaminar cracking, delaminations, erosion, and damage to anti-corrosion coatings. Read about composites endowed with microvascular transport, which can deliver healing agents, coolants, or refrigerant fluids throughout the material. Find out about developments in nanotechnology resulting in lower gas permeability, improving storage tanks, food packaging, fire resistance, and thermal protection systems. Furthermore, discover composites with innovative excitation-response capabilities that are not found in nature. CONTRIBUTORS Chapter 1 Electromagnetic effects Ernest K. Condon III and Paul J.
