The first book to address this pivotal topic in engineering–with essential information for practical applications involving composite materials In Dynamic Loading and Characterization of Fiber–Reinforced Composites, engineers finally have a single–source reference for their work with fiber–reinforced composite materials. Two recognized researchers in the field provide accessible coverage of dynamic loading devices, material properties characterization, assessment and evaluation of damage and failure associated with various dynamic loading events, and more–equipping engineers and students with the information they need in order to carry out their own projects effectively. The book includes:

∗ Concepts and classification of dynamic events, plus an in–depth look at dynamic properties of composites, test procedures, and test data

∗ An examination of wave motion in fiber–reinforced composites–with coverage of effective modulus and other theories, wave motions in composite plates under impact loadings, and experimental wave propagation studies

∗ An expanded discussion of damage detection and characterization methods, damage tolerance assessment and design

∗ Detailed treatment of impact damage classification and modeling–including energy balance, spring–mass, and other models

∗ Clear summaries of major research findings on the subject–in easy–to–grasp tabular form

∗ More than 100 illustrations and a full complement of references on each topic discussed
