About the book
Composite Materials: Production, Properties, Testing and Applications discusses in detail reinforcements, matrices, composites such as MMCs, PMCs, CMCs, CCCs and IMCs alongwith production processes, properties and applications, and also testing of composites both destructive and nondestructive. Mechanics of composites based on rule of mixtures at an introductory level and numerical problems add value to the book. The importance of composite materials as engineered materials in modern society is clearly brought out.
