The publisher makes no warranty, express or implied, with respect to the material contained herein. The industrial activity, in particular, has been led by the large-scale use of composites by aerospace companies, mainly Boeing and Airbus. Boeing has composites in the fuselage, chaela, wings, tails, stabilizers, etc. Neverthe- less, it should be pointed out that in reality, the extensive use of composites in aircraft is a culmination of a series of earlier steps over the decades since mids.


Besides the large-scale applications in the aerospace industry, there have been impressive developments in other fields maherials as automotive, sporting goods, super- conductivity, etc. All of this activity has led to a substantial addition of new material in this edition.

Among these are the following: In addition, I have added a new chapter called nonconventional composites. This chapter deals with some nonconventional composites such as nanocomposites polymer, metal, and ceramic matrixself-healing composites, self-reinforced composites, biocom- posites, and laminates made of bidimensional layers.

Once again, I plead guilty to the charge that the material contained in this edition is more than can be covered in a normal, semester-long course. I have always had the broader aim of providing a text that is suitable as a source of reference for the practicing researcher, scientist, and engineer. Finally, there is the pleasant task of acknowledgments.

Among the people with whom I have had the privilege of collaborating over the years and who composiet enriched my life, professional and otherwise, I would like to mention, in alphabetical order, C. Gupta, the late B. Thanks are due to Kanika Chawla and S. Patel for help with the figures in this edition.

I owe a special debt of gratitude to my wife, Nivi, for being there all the time. Last but not least, I am ever grateful to my parents, the late Manohar L.

The second edition follows the same format as the first one, namely, a well-balanced treatment of materials and mechanics aspects of composites, with due recognition of the importance of the processing.

The second edition is a fully revised, updated, and enlarged edition of this widely used text. There are some new chapters, and others have been brought up-to-date in light of cpmposite extensive work done in the decade since publication of the first edition. Many people who used the first edition as a classroom text urged me to include some solved examples.

In deference to their wishes I have done so. I am sorry that it took me such a long time to prepare the second edition. Things are happening at a very fast pace in the field of composites, and there is no question that a lot of very interesting and important work has been done in co,posite past decade or so.

Out of necessity, one must limit the compostie of material to be included in a textbook. In spite of this view, it took me much more time than.
