Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Book excerpt: Fatigue Life Prediction of Composites and Composite Structures, Second Edition, is a comprehensive review of fatigue damage and fatigue life modeling and prediction methodologies for composites and their use in practice. In this new edition, existing chapters are fully updated, while new chapters are introduced to cover the most recent developments in the field. The use of composites is growing in structural applications in many industries, including aerospace, marine, wind turbine and civil engineering. However, there are uncertainties about their long-term performance, including performance issues relating to cyclic fatigue loading that hinder the adoption of a commonly accepted credible fatigue design methodology for the life prediction of composite engineering structures. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, this book is a standard reference for industry professionals and researchers alike. Examines past, present and future trends associated with the fatigue life prediction of composite materials and structures Assesses novel computational methods for fatigue life modeling and prediction of composite materials under constant amplitude loading Covers a wide range of techniques for predicting fatigue, including their theoretical background and practical applications Addresses new topics and covers contemporary research developments in the field
