    Features the most current information on experimental and analytical research in key areas of composite technology. Leading experts in the field have presented 18 comprehensive, peer-reviewed papers covering the following major categories:

    Fatigue and Fracture-- 8 papers focus on microstructural effects, damage, predictive tools and test method development.

    Environmental Considerations-- How temperature and other environmental factors impact the long-term durability of composite structures are explored in 5 papers.

    Impact-- 4 papers discuss impact response, damage formation and the use of NDE techniques as a predictive tool.

    Perspective -- An artistic viewpoint of composite materials used in sculpture and masonry murals and their long-term durability is presented in 1 comprehensive paper.

    A valuable resource for scientists and engineers in the commercial, military and aerospace industries, applied mechanics and materials engineers, and research and design specialists in the structural engineering field.
