About The Book
This book "Composite Materials" is primarily well suited as a guide for self study of Composite Materials. The information presented in this book has been evolved from the experience in the teaching for many years to the undergraduate and postgraduate of the Mechanical Engineering students. This book contains nine chapters in all namely Introduction to Composites, Fibre Reinforced Plastic, Fabrication of Composites, Application of Composites, Metal Matrix Composites, Fabrication Process of MMC, Properties of MMC, Shape Memory Alloys, and Development of Composites. All these chapters are saturated with much needed text, supported by simple and self-explanatory figures. The authors hopes that the students and teachers will find it as a useful book. Constructive criticism of the book will be warmly received.
