Composite Materials handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Stress Analysis of Fiber-Reinforced Composite Materials
by Michael W. Hyer

Updated and improved, Stress Analysis of Fiber-Reinforced Composite Materials, remains the definitive introduction to the use of mechanics to understand stresses in composites caused by deformations, loading, and temperature changes. It emphasizes the micromechanics of stress and deformation for composite material analysis.

Features:

  • Mechanics of composites for all aspects of stress, deformation, loading
  • Special section on thermal stresses caused by curing
  • Dozens of key calculations, ready for computer programming in Fortran
  • Series of sample problems continued throughout the text

A key feature is a series of analytic problems continuing throughout the text, starting from relatively simple problems, which are built up step-by-step with accompanying calculations. The problem series uses the same material properties, so the impact of the elastic and thermal expansion properties for a single-layer of FR material on the stress, strains, elastic properties, thermal expansion and failure stress of cross-ply and angle-ply symmetric and unsymmetric laminates can be evaluated.

The book shows how thermally induced stresses and strains due to curing, add to or subtract from those due to applied loads. Another important element, and one unique to this book, is an emphasis on the difference between specifying the applied loads, i.e., force and moment results, often the case in practice, versus specifying strains and curvatures and determining the subsequent stresses and force and moment results. This represents a fundamental distinction in solid mechanics.
