About the Authors
  • This fully expanded and updated edition provides both scientists and engineers with all the information they need to understand composite materials, covering their underlying science and technological usage. It includes four completely new chapters on surface coatings, highly porous materials, bio-composites and nano-composites, as well as thoroughly revised chapters on fibres and matrices, the design, fabrication and production of composites, mechanical and thermal properties, and industry applications. Extensively expanded referencing engages readers with the latest research and industrial developments in the field, and increased coverage of essential background science makes this a valuable self-contained text. A comprehensive set of homework questions, with model answers available online, explains how calculations associated with the properties of composite materials should be tackled, and educational software accompanying the book is available online. An invaluable text for final-year undergraduates in materials science and engineering, and graduate students and researchers in academia and industry.

    • Includes four completely new chapters on surface coatings, highly porous materials, bio-composites and nano-composites
    • Thoroughly revised throughout, with chapters on fibres and matrices, the design, fabrication and production of composites, mechanical and thermal properties, and industry applications
    • Includes increased coverage of background science, including the manipulation of stresses and strains as second-rank tensors, and fracture mechanics
    • Contains a comprehensive set of homework questions, with model answers available online, explaining how calculations associated with the properties of composite materials should be tackled, as well as access to educational software

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This introductory textbook goes beyond the descriptive level and the usual engineering approximations to a deeper, yet accessible, level of fundamental composite mechanics that provides valuable insights into composite performance.' William Curtin, École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne

    'Composite materials combine and comprise an understanding of materials science, mechanics and general engineering. The third edition of An Introduction to Composite Materials by T. W. Clyne and D. Hull is an carefully revised version of the previous very successful textbook. It is a comprehensive summary of the current knowledge in composites science and technology - specially prepared as a textbook for young scientists and graduate students to get a substantial insight into this still young area. I personally recommend this book to my graduate students.' Karl Schulte, Technische Universität Hamburg

    'This extensively revised and expanded edition includes the latest developments in composites research and applications. The new chapters on surface coatings, highly porous materials, bio- and nano-composites are uniquely valuable.' Tsu-Wei Chou, University of Delaware
