The two volumes that comprise this work provide a comprehensive guide and source book on the marine use of composite materials. This first volume, Fundamental Aspects, provides a rigourous development of theory. Areas covered include materials science, environmental aspects, production technology, structural analysis and the role of standard test procedures. These volumes will provide an introduction to this important and fast-growing area for students and researchers in naval architecture and maritime engineering. It will also be of value to practising engineers as a comprehensive reference more

Review quote

"...a good up-to-date introduction to the overview of the composite materials technology for marine engineering. It is good reference material for structural engineers with no background in fiber reinforced plastic materials." Applied Mechanics Reviewshow more
