Composite materials - combinations of materials such as fibers, metals, and resins in laminar or reinforced-matrix designs - are stronger than conventioanl monolithic materials yet more versatile and high resistant to corrosion and wear. These materials are used in a multitude of industries with applications for aircraft, automobiles, and sports equipment, to name just a few. The new edition of this valuable compilation of data on metal and resin matrix composites now includes complete information on all the new composite forms, fibers, and resins introduced since the publication of the first edition. The second edition features the latest information on: improved metals and fibers; fabrication of fiber- and metal-reinforced matrix composites; advanced resin systems; composite design criteria; quality assurance; practical coverage of molding, curing, machining, casting, cutting, trimming, fastening, and joining. Filled with up-to-date details of major developments in this dynamic field, the second edition of "Composite Materials Handbook" will enable engineers to design and fabricate products utilizing the most economical material/process combination.
