Composite Materials: Testing and Design, Fourteenth Volume

Editor(s): Charles E. Bakis

Twenty-two peer-reviewed papers cover a variety of topics, including testing and design methods related to high speed fiber reinforced composite rotors for energy storage in space applications. Fiber reinforced polymer composite rotors are ideal for light-weight flywheel energy storage devices because of their high strength to density ratio. Eight peer-reviewed papers on composite flywheels cover material properties testing, nondestructive evaluation, manufacturing, time dependent deformation, burst testing, and containment.

This new volume also addresses computational simulation as it relates to composite material behavior and verification testing strategies, infrastructure applications, and general topics dealing with testing and design.

Five sections cover:
•Composite Flywheels for Energy Storage
•Construction and Industrial Applications
•Computational Simulation Methods for Composite Behavior and Verification Testing Strategies
•Metal Matrix Composites
•Polymer Matrix Composites.

Research & development engineers, and university and government laboratory researchers will find this new publication to be a valuable resource.
