Designing structures using composite materials poses unique challenges due especially to the need for concurrent design of both material and structure. Students are faced with two options: textbooks that teach the theory of advanced mechanics of composites, but lack computational examples of advanced analysis; and books on finite element analysis that may or may not demonstrate very limited applications to composites. But now there is third option that makes the other two obsolete: Ever J. Barbero's Finite Element Analysis of Composite Materials. By layering detailed theoretical and conceptual discussions with fully developed examples, this text supplies the missing link between theory and implementation. In-depth discussions cover all of the major aspects of advanced analysis, including three-dimensional effects, viscoelasticity, edge effects, elastic instability, damage, and delamination. More than 50 complete examples using mainly ANSYSTM, but also including some use of MATLAB®, demonstrate how to use the concepts to formulate and execute finite element analyses and how to interpret the results in engineering terms. Additionally, the source code for each example is available for download online. Cementing applied computational and analytical experience to a firm foundation of basic concepts and theory, Finite Element Analysis of Composite Materials offers a modern, practical, and versatile classroom tool for today's engineering classroom.

Multifunctional Composites

Multifunctional composites include all composites which provide more than one property, or functionality, whether specifically designed or modified from existing designs. Although traditional polymer matrix composites have many useful properties including stiffness, strength, and durability, these often involve tradeoffs such as poor acoustic damping and low electrical conductivity. By designing multifunctional composites, new and enhanced functionalities can complement the typical high-stiffness and high-strength densities of composites. Furthermore, multifunctional composites can feature entirely original functionalities, such as self-healing and microvascular transport, which do not exist in classical composites. Among the shortcomings of traditional composites are lower conductivity and higher contact resistance than aluminum. This complicates efforts to provide aircraft with shielding, grounding, and protection from lighting strikes. Laminated composites are also susceptible to damage when subjected to low velocity impact, resulting in reduced compression-after-impact (CAI) strength. In applications such as aircraft, rotorcraft, windmills, and missiles, erosion by rain and sand roughens surfaces of classical composites, reducing aerodynamic performance and optical and radiation transmission. In addition, traditional composites' high stiffness-to-weight ratio facilitates the propagation of acoustic and mechanical vibration, leading to passenger discomfort and even mechanical damage. Innovative materials that can mitigate these shortcomings are thoroughly described in this book-from design to application. Learn how self-healing composites can remedy many types of damage, including intralaminar cracking, delaminations, erosion, and damage to anti-corrosion coatings. Read about composites endowed with microvascular transport, which can deliver healing agents, coolants, or refrigerant fluids throughout the material. Find out about developments in nanotechnology resulting in lower gas permeability, improving storage tanks, food packaging, fire resistance, and thermal protection systems. Furthermore, discover composites with innovative excitation-response capabilities that are not found in nature. CONTRIBUTORS Chapter 1 Electromagnetic effects Ernest K. Condon III and Paul J.
