This book is probably the most informative and highly helpful work on the subject of structural aspects of composites, and merits an honored place in the study of every student and researcher associated with composites. Practicing composite structures engineers dealing with composites cannot fail to find much of interest and motivate them in this volume. It demands a place in their libraries. Indeed a worthwhile investment that continues the level of excellence associated with the earlier edition. Current Engineering Practice, vol. 47, 2004.

Dr. Vinson is the H. Fletcher Brown Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Delaware. In 1977 he received the ONR-AIAA Structural Mechanics Award for his research in composite materials, and in 1981 he was awarded an ASME Centennial Award. He is active as a consultant to government and industry. He recently received a Fellowship from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science for 1985. He has been Chairman of the American Organizing Committee for the Japan-United States Conferences on Composite Materials three times (1981, 1983 and 1986). Dr. Sierakowski is Professor and Chairman of the Civil Engineering Department at the Ohio State University. He has held many academic and industrial posts in the United States and has been a National Research Council Senior Research Fellow, a consultant to Air Force Laboratories, and a Visiting Professor at the Air Force Office of Scientific Research.


Composite structures and products have developed tremendously since the publication of the first edition of this work in 1986. This new edition of the now classic 1986 text has been written to educate the engineering reader in the various aspects of mechanics for using composite materials in the design and analysis of composite structures and products. Areas dealt with include manufacture, micromechanical properties, structural design, joints and bonding and a much needed introduction to composite design philosophy. Each chapter is concluded by numerous problems suitable for home assignments or examination. A solution guide is available on request from the authors.
