Advanced Composites: Microstructure, Mechanics, Manufacturing and Optimisation

Advanced composites are playing an increasingly important role in various applications – from automotive and aerospace to energy, defence and sports. The current stage of research is on development of better reinforcements and matrices, optimisation of microstructures and suggestion of sophisticated manufacturing technologies. This, together with non-trivial damage and failure processes, requires new insights into mechanics of such materials and respective manufacturing techniques. This thematic series covers various aspects of advanced composite materials, with a main focus on their microstructure, analysis and optimisation of their properties and performance as well as development of modern technological processes for them.
