Composite materials are used in all kinds of engineering structures, medical prosthetic devices, electronic circuit boards, and sports equipment. The subject of these materials is an interdisciplinary area where chemists, material scientists, and chemical, mechanical, and structural engineers contribute to the overall product. This book presents, for the first time, detailed coverage of traditional theories and higher-order theories of laminated composite materials. Much of the text is based on the author's original work on refined theories of laminated composite plates and shells, and analytical and finite element solutions. In addition, the book reviews the basics including mathematical preliminaries, virtual work principles, and variational methods. Mechanics of Laminated Composite Plates: Theory and Analysis makes a great textbook for graduate-level courses on theory and/or analysis of composite laminates, and can be conveniently divided into two sections: Chapters 1-8 for an introductory course, and 9-13 for the advanced course.

"[R]enowned author, educator, and researcher J.N. Reddy has thoroughly revised, updated, and enhanced his standard-setting [book]. Worked examples in each chapter and more than 300 figures help illustrate difficult concepts, deepen understanding, and demonstrate typical applications . Simply put, no other book is as up to date. No other book approaches the subject primarily form the finite element method, and no other book provides such full, self-contained coverage of the theories, analytical solutions, and modeling laminated composite plate and shell structures." - Apollit, Oct. 2004 "This is an authoritative text. It belongs on the shelf of every person working in composite structures, whether or not their research is in theory and analysis of composite structures It provides much needed material in the analysis of smart structures and functionally gradient materials as well as on shell structures." -Anthony J. Vizzini, Director, Composites Research Laboratory, University of Maryland--Aerospace Engineering
