This is the only unified guide and reference to the experimental characterization of advanced composite materials. It covers concisely and systematically the experimental determination of basic elastic, strength and fracture properties of composites.
Included are step-by-step procedures for materials processing, specimen manufacturing and instrumentation, test methods and data reduction methods.
More than 130 schematics and photographs illustrate materials and test methods. An introductory chapter provides a theoretical foundation for the various aspects of experimental characterization covered. Numerous actual stress-strain curves and test results are included for illustration and comparison.
The authors are recognized as leading authorities and educators in this field whose many prior publications comprise an important contribution to the knowledge base of advanced composite materials.

From the Introduction
The objective of this book is to present processing techniques, specimen preparation, analysis of test methods, testing, and data reduction schemes in order to determine mechanical properties, thermal expansion coefficients, and fracture and strength data for advanced composite materials. Emphasis is placed on practical matters such as preparation and testing of specimens and data reduction methodology. Several of the test methods included are ASTM standards, while others are being reviewed in ASTM committees and elsewhere to refine test geometries, test procedures and test reduction schemes. . . . The methods presented in some detail are deemed the most appropriate and widely accepted.
