This book provides an introduction to the fundamentals of composite materials for high performance structures from the point of view of engineering design, manufacturing, analysis, and repair. It is designed to address eight critical areas of composite technologies. Readers will learn how composite materials achieve properties of strength, stiffness, weight ratios and durability that surpass aluminum in high performance structures. For these applications, engineers typically rely on laminated structures, which are built up from many varying layers of ply-materials. Using this process the mechanical properties of the composite part can be tailored to specific applications resulting in significant weight and cost savings. Tailoring specific properties and designing innovative laminate structures highlights the multidisciplinary nature of this industry.

Dr. Kuen Y. Lin is currently a Professor in the William E. Boeing Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at the University of Washington. Dr. Lin received his Master’s degree in 1973 and Ph.D. degree in 1977 from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, specializing in Composite Materials and Aircraft Structures. Dr. Lin has over 40 years of research and teaching experience in advanced composite materials and structures. He has pioneered a singular hybrid finite element method for the accurate analysis of bi-material fracture problems (1976), and co-developed the well-known "Mar-Lin" fracture model (1977) for the damage tolerance analysis of composite structures. During the period 1978-1983, Dr. Lin was a senior specialist engineer at Boeing, working on Boeing’s first major composite aircraft development program. Since his appointment to the University of Washington faculty in 1984, he has developed an extensive research program in aerospace composite materials and structures. He has been awarded numerous research grants by FAA, NASA, DOD, Toray and Boeing in the analysis, design, testing, and repair of advanced composite materials. His current research focuses on critical composite technologies for the next generation of aerospace vehicles. In collaboration with The Boeing Company, Dr. Lin co-developed an award-winning certificate program in Aircraft Composite Structural Analysis and Design at the University of Washington. He has taught Composites courses to over 1,800 engineers working in the U.S. aerospace industry. Dr. Lin is the instructor of a UW online course on Composite Materials, which has attracted more than 11,800 students from 153 countries in Fall Quarter 2014.
