Features

  • Emphasizes the scientific origin of deformation and damage of FRP composites under various environmental effects
  • Reviews present understanding on degradation mechanisms, role of interfaces, addition of nanofillers and microcharacterization of composites and interfaces
  • Includes micromechanisms and microscopic evidences to establish the structure-property correlation
  • Illustrates advantages and limitations of FRP composites in supercritical applications
  • Presents the theory behind the prediction of short and long terms performances of FRPs

Summary

In the realm of fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials, the role of fibre/polymer interface/interphase in the overall properties of composite is widely acknowledged. The book will provide critical information regarding the in-service environmental damage and degradation studies of FRP composites. The readers will be able to identify the possible superior advantages and limitations of FRP composites in various simple and super critical applications. Further emphasis will be given on the identification of various failure micro-mechanisms leading to unprecedented failure in different harsh and hostile environment. The book will include the relevant case studies.
