The older ideas are presented along with the contemporary research, and the experimental evidence is given in outline, and fully referenced. Where practical, illustrations are chosen from key works and the source reference is given in the subtitle as in the first edition.- As before, this book is directed toward upper-year university students and graduate students. Ideas that are highlighted include: how the interface governs the transfer of forces between the fibres and the polymer, or metal, or ceramic, which constitutes the other component of the material- how to design a good laminate- the effect of water and other fluids in reinforced polymers- and shear failure.
