Advanced Topics in Characterization of Composites
Advanced Topics in Characterization of Composites is a product of the ”Characterization of Composite Materials” graduate course in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Tulsa. It contains a series of chapters describing characterization techniques for polymer-matrix composite materials. Topics covered include:
-thermal analysis using DSC,
-single-fiber fragmentation testing,
-creep and creep nature,
-structural health monitoring, and
The chapters include comprehensive literature reviews, background information, and best practices in experimental composites evaluation.
