REDUCE YOUR LEARNING CURVE!
Whether you are new to composites or have prior experience, this book will dramatically reduce your learning curve.
OVER 700 PAGES, 250+ FIGURES, 450+ REFERENCES
This is a very comprehensive work on the subject of aircraft composites, the result of over 20,000 hours of development. Because there is a sole author, all of the topics are integrated in a consistent and seamless manner.
PRACTICAL vs. THEORETICAL
It is not always clear what is considered to be practical versus theoretical, so this book differentiates the two. While various theoretical aspects are discussed, the emphasis is on practical approaches that have been established in the aircraft industry.
Many of the approaches and principles are applicable to other applications (space, automotive, civil, marine, etc.)
To be the most competent analyst, an engineer should also be familiar with design practices, mechanical properties, requirements and substantiation, and processing; this is especially true for composites. These additional topics are addressed.
Specialized software was developed to create equations that are easily readable. All figures are high quality and not scanned images. The book uses superior paper stock and binding, and a scuff-resistant cover.
