Dynamic Deformation, Damage and Fracture in Composite Materials and Structures


In recent years, the use of composite materials that has already demonstrated a continuing increase in various industries has undergone another step change linked to their broad introduction into automotive structures, including a start of mass production of a composite-body BMW i3 series in 2013.

This Developmentdtogether with extensive employment of composites in aerospace, wind energy, transportation, naval and defence systems and structures as well as in sports productsdexacerbated a Need for improved understanding of dynamic deformation, damage and fracture of composites since such components and structures are exposed in service to quasi-static loading conditions, and various types of dynamic loads and regimes expanded significantly.

If in the case of aerospace structures, most dynamic events could be related only to a few specific scenarios such as caused by dropped tools, hail, a bird strike or runway debris; an extensive use of composites both in body panels and critical components of cars will broaden significantly their types as well as occurrence.

A mechanics-of-composites community has already accumulated a wealth of knowledge and expertise in this area of research, and this book presents an up-to-date overview of developments and achievements in this challenging area. Inevitably, not everything can be covered in a single volume. Hence, this monograph is limited to laminates, with fibre-reinforced composites in its centre.

Two main reasons are behind this choice: a ubiquitous use of these materials and significantly more complex damage and failure scenarios compared to those in particulate composites. Sandwich structures are a natural extension, since they have many common features with laminates and in many cases use the latter as their face/back sheets. Thus, the book covers carbon- and glass-fibre-reinforced polymer-matrix composites (including fabric rein-forced), hybrid composites, various sandwich structures and fibreemetal laminates.
