pioneering book presents new models for the thermomechanical behavior of

composite materials and structures taking into account internal

physico-chemical transformations such as thermodecomposition, sublimation and

melting at high temperatures (up to 3000 K). It is of great importance for

the design of new thermostable materials and for the investigation of

reliability and fire safety of composite structures. It also supports the

investigation of interaction of composites with laser irradiation and the

design of heat-shield systems.

Structural methods are presented for calculating the effective mechanical and

thermal properties of matrices, fibres and unidirectional, reinforced by

dispersed particles and textile composites, in terms of properties of their constituent

phases. Useful calculation methods are developed for characteristics such as

the rate of thermomechanical erosion of composites under high-speed flow and

the heat deformation of composites with account of chemical shrinkage.

The author expansively compares modeling results with experimental data, and

readers will find unique experimental results on mechanical and thermal

properties of composites under temperatures up to 3000 K. Chapters show how the

behavior of composite shells under high temperatures is simulated by the

finite-element method and so cylindrical and axisymmetric composite shells and

composite plates are investigated under local high-temperature heating.


The book will be of interest to researchers and to engineers designing composite

structures, and invaluable to materials scientists developing advanced

performance thermostable materials.
