Toughening mechanisms in composite materials

Research output: Book/Report/ProceedingsBook



Key Features
•Covers particle-reinforced composites, fibre-reinforced composites and other toughening mechanisms
•Analyses toughening mechanisms in a broad range of composite materials
•Developments in nanotube toughened composites and toughened graphene ceramic composites are examined

Toughening Mechanisms in Composite Materials aims to provide a comprehensive and technically detailed coverage of composites and their toughening mechanisms. Unique in its direct and comprehensive approach, the book presents fundamental knowledge on composites’ toughening mechanisms as well as a comprehensive treatment of numerical methods. This volume summarizes the current state-of-the-art and presents the most recent research outcomes in the field. It details the development of each of the techniques, beginning with basic principles, and new concepts are illustrated with examples wherever possible.
