Focusing on the mechanics aspect of fiber-reinforced composite materials, this new text develops the classic lamination theory and discusses stresses due to applied deformations, applied loads, and temperature changes. A set of examples is introduced early in the text and built upon as additional concepts are developed. These examples provide continuity and allow students to evaluate the impact of more complex issues as the book progresses. Implications and interpretations of the various simplifying assumptions are also reinforced throughout the text.
