Fundamentals of design, processing, and selection of composite materials for structural applications are covered. The topics include a review of all classes of engineering materials, an in-depth analysis of micro and macro mechanical behavior including interactions at the two-phase interfaces, modeling of composite morphologies for optimal microstructures, material aspects, cost considerations, processing methods- including consideration of chemical reactions, stability of the interfaces and material selection.
