Composite materials have been at the heart of many significant breakthroughs in various industrial applications, particularly in aerospace structures, over the past forty years. Their high strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios are the main material characteristics that attract the attention of structural and design engineers.
This work provides comprehensive analysis of the contemporary theoretical models at the micro and macro levels of material structure, detailing practical methods and approaches, experimental results, and optimization of composite material properties and structural components including composite beams, thin-walled beams, plates, and cylindrical shells that can be used by researchers and engineers.
