The principal aim of this book is to provide the basis of calculations concerned with composite structures. Using continuum mechanics to facilitate the treatment of more elaborate theories. This theoretical treatment deals with individual layers in laminated composites, both of anisotropic and orthotropic materials. Including the basic laws that govern mixtures. Multi-layer plates are then considered. Followed by a description of beam behaviour under tension-compression loading. Sheat deformation and bending. Vibration and buckling.

Advanced students and practitioners involved in Mechanics, Mechanical structures and systems and with a particular interest in composite structures will and this book useful.
