Creep and Fatigue in Polymer Matrix Composites (Woodhead Publishing Series in Composites Science and Engineering)

Creep and Fatigue in Polymer Matrix Composites (Woodhead Publishing Series in Composites Science and Engineering)Creep is the tendency of materials to deform when subjected to long-term stress, particularly when exposed to heat. Fatigue phenomena occur when a material is subjected to cyclic loading, causing damage which may progress to failure. Both are critical factors in the long-term performance and reliability of materials such as polymer matrix composites which are often exposed to these types of stress in civil engineering and other applications. This…

Creep in Structures: 4th IUTAM Symposium, Cracow, Poland September 10-14, 1990 (IUTAM Symposia)

Creep in Structures: 4th IUTAM Symposium, Cracow, Poland September 10-14, 1990 (IUTAM Symposia)There is a tradition to organize IUTAM Symposia “Creep in Structures” every ten years: the first Symposium was organized by N.J. Hoff in Stan- ford (1960), the second one by J. Hult in Goteborg (1970), and the third one by A.R.S. Ponter in Leicester (1980). The fourth Symposium in Cracow, September 1990, gathered 123 par- ticipants from 21 countries and reflected rapid development of the theory, experimental research and structural applications o…

Durability of Fiber-Reinforced Polymers

Durability of Fiber-Reinforced PolymersThe result of the authors’ 40 years of experience in durability testing, this book describes the advanced testing methodology based on the viscoelasticity of matrix polymer. After a short introduction to the viscoelastic behavior of fiber-reinforced plastics, the text goes on to review in detail the concepts of static, fatigue and creep strengths in polymer composites. An application-oriented approach is adopted such that the concepts developed …
