This pioneering book presents new models for the thermomechanical behavior of composite materials, taking into account internal physico-chemical transformations such as thermodecomposition, sublimation, and melting at high temperatures. It collects unique experimental results on mechanical and thermal properties of composites at temperatures up to 2000 DegreesC.
