Creep and Fatigue in Polymer Matrix Composites

Creep and Fatigue in Polymer Matrix Composites Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 stresses in civil engineering and other applications. This important book reviews the latest research in modeling and predicting creep and fatigue in polymer matrix composites. The first part of the book reviews the modeling of viscoelastic and viscoplastic behavior as a way of predicting performance and service life. Part two discusses techniques for modeling creep rupture and failure. The final part of the book addresses ways of testing and predicting long-term creep and fatigue in polymer matrix composites.

Book News Annotation:

Researchers in mechanical engineering, materials science, and related fields review the current understanding of two factors that may diminish the long-term performance of a material, in this case polymer matrix composites. They cover viscoelastic and viscoplastic modeling; creep rupture; and modeling, characterizing, and monitoring fatigue. The topics include the time-temperature-age superposition principle for predicting the long-term response of linear viscoelastic materials, predicting the viscoelastic behavior of polymer nano-composites, fiber-bundle models to analyze creep rupture in polymer matrix composites, the continuum-damage mechanical modeling of creep damage and fatigue, accelerated testing methodology for predicting long-term creep and fatigue, and monitoring the structural health of composite structures for durability.

Synopsis:

Creep and Fatigue in Polymer Matrix Composites reviews ways of modeling creep and fatigue in polymer matrix composites with the aim of predicting and preventing failure. Part 1 focuses on viscoelastic and viscoplastic modelling. Part 2 covers environmental effects and stress corrosion while Part 3 analyses creep rupture and damage interaction. Part 4 investigates fatigue modeling and characterization and Part 5 covers the monitoring of creep and fatigue.
