Composite Laminates: Theory and practice of analysis, design and automated layup
Stephen W. Tsai & Associates
New book: Composite Laminates: Theory and practice of analysis, design and automated layup
A strategy to design composite laminates with optimum combination of strength, stiffness, toughness and simple fabrication. This book presents a new design approach for composite laminated structures based on invariants: Trace of the plane stress stiffness matrix and Unit Circle failure criterion. The design of composite grid structures is discussed in details.
