1. “Advanced Technology for Design and Fabrication of Composite Materials and Structures” by George C Sih and Alberto Carpinteri

“Advanced Technology for Design and Fabrication of Composite Materials and Structures” Book Review: This book presents the findings of a detailed study to explore the behavior of architectural glazing systems during and after an earthquake and to develop design proposals that will mitigate or even eliminate the damage inflicted on these systems. The seismic behavior of common types of architectural glazing systems are investigated and causes of damage to each system, identified.The theme of this Symposium is particularly relevant to the automobile, marine, aerospace and construction industry where the competitive edge lies on improved processing and/or manufacturing of the products. Technological advances have been and will continue to depend strongly on the development of new materials and their effective use in design. Empirical trial-and- error methods could no longer be considered economically feasible when applied to usage-specific materials such as composites.

8. “Mechanical Testing of Advanced Fibre Composites” by John M Hodgkinson

“Mechanical Testing of Advanced Fibre Composites” Book Review: To design a structure or component one must carefully consider the intimate relationship between how the component is supposed to perform and the properties of the material from which it is made. This can be a tricky balancing act, even with isotropic, homogeneous materials. By their very nature, composite materials can present complex problems in the testing of their structural performance. Focusing on composites of advanced fibres in a plastic matrix, Mechanical Testing of Advanced Fibre Composites provides the background and general principles to tackle such problems. Expert contributors examine how these materials react to all types of loading, including tensile, compressive, shear, short- or long-term, and in various environments that might significantly modify their behavior.
