Although largely geared toward the aerospace industry, this handbook assumes no prior knowledge about advanced composite materials and gradually makes the reader conversant in composite terminology. After giving a comprehensive description of what composites are and how they work, this guide breaks materials down into their constituents and offers details about design considerations and guidelines, various tooling concepts, manufacturing methods, and accepted repair theories and concepts. Other sections include the most up-to-date information on adhesive bonding technology, core materials, materials testing, and nondestructive inspection techniques and equipment.
