Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The two volumes that comprise this work provide a comprehensive guide and source book on the marine use of composite materials. The first volume, Fundamental Aspects, provides a rigorous development of theory. Areas covered include materials science, environmental aspects, production technology, structural analysis, finite-element methods, materials failure mechanisms and the role of standard test procedures. An appendix gives tables of the mechanical properties of common polymeric composites and laminates in marine use. The second volume, Practical Considerations, examines how the theory can be used in the design and construction of marine structures, including boats, submersibles, offshore structures and other deep-ocean installations.

Includes bibliographical references and indexes.
