About the Authors
  • The two volumes that comprise this work provide a comprehensive guide and source book on the marine use of composite materials. This second volume, Practical Considerations, examines how the theory can be used in the design and construction of marine structures, including ships, boats, offshore structures and other deep-ocean installations. Areas covered in this second volume include design, the role of adhesives, fabrication techniques and operational aspects such as response to slam loads and fatigue performance. The final three chapters of the book cover regulatory aspects of design, quality and safety assessment and management and organisation. These volumes will provide an introduction to this important and fast-growing area for students and researchers in naval architecture and maritime engineering. It will also be of value to practising engineers as comprehensive reference book.
