Abstract:

Composite materials are widely used in a variety of applied technologies including transportation, off-shore, power, electronics, communications, sports equipment, and infrastructure industries. In the last few years, these applications have matured in many ways. For example, polymer composites are increasingly used in primary and man-rated structures. A controlling feature of the general use of composite systems is their damage tolerance, durability, and reliability. That is the subject of the present book. The papers in this volume were generated as a result of the Third International Conference on Progress in Durability Analysis of Composite Systems, held on 14-17 September 1997 on the campus of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, Virginia. Delegates from 19 countries and more than a dozen universities and a like number of industries participated in the conference.
