Reviews

'This introductory textbook goes beyond the descriptive level and the usual engineering approximations to a deeper, yet accessible, level of fundamental composite mechanics that provides valuable insights into composite performance.' William Curtin, Ecole polytechnique federale de Lausanne
'Composite materials combine and comprise an understanding of materials science, mechanics and general engineering. The third edition of An Introduction to Composite Materials by T. W. Clyne and D. Hull is an carefully revised version of the previous very successful textbook. It is a comprehensive summary of the current knowledge in composites science and technology - specially prepared as a textbook for young scientists and graduate students to get a substantial insight into this still young area. I personally recommend this book to my graduate students.' Karl Schulte, Technische Universitat Hamburg
'This extensively revised and expanded edition includes the latest developments in composites research and applications. The new chapters on surface coatings, highly porous materials, bio- and nano-composites are uniquely valuable.' Tsu-Wei Chou, University of Delaware
