Completely revised and updated, this second edition of a bestseller contains new chapters on damage mechanics, fabric reinforced composites, and external strengthening for infrastructure. It covers design aspects such as fiber and matrix selection, fabrication processes, prediction of material properties, and structural analysis and design of beams, plates, and shells, including many fully developed examples. Powerful preliminary design tools, such as "carpet plots," are used in examples throughout the book. Instructional materials (including PowerPoint slides), special software coordinated with the book, and other pedagogical tools are available from a password-protected website maintained by the author.
