    This unique volume is an important step toward an integrated source of test methods and procedures for setting design allowables for composites and composite structures. The contributions grouped into four major areas include:

    New and Special Test Methods
    Special Test Methods and Analysis
    Design Allowables
    Design Allowables for Special Applications.
