About this item

These days advanced multi-scale hybrid materials are being produced in the industry, studied by the universities, and used in several applications. Unlike macro materials, it is difficult to obtain nano material properties due to the scales. For designers to perform any finite element analysis or durability and damage tolerance analysis, it is important to have knowledge of these properties.

This book is unique as it provides a multi-scale, multi-physics, and statistical analysis combined with multi-scale progressive failure analysis approach. The combination gives a very powerful tool for minimizing tests, improving accuracy, and understanding the effect of statistical nature in materials in addition to the mechanics of the advanced multi-scale material all the way to failure. The book focuses on methodology details backed with comparison of predictions with test data for various types of static, fatigue, dynamic, and crack growth problems.

These days advanced multi-scale hybrid materials are being produced in the industry, studied by the universities, and used in several applications. Unlike macro materials, it is difficult to obtain physical, mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties of nano materials due to the scales. For designers to perform any finite element analysis or durability and damage tolerance analysis, it is important to have knowledge of these properties.

The scope of the book is limited to the discussion of material characterization methodology for constituents of advanced hybrid multi-scale composites by means of reverse-engineering method using test data from macro/continuum level properties to micro and nano level. The book goes further in showing how these constituent reverse-engineered properties are used to predict macro-level continuum properties combining all nano- (Mori-Tanaka formulation) and micro-level (micro-mechanics [modified rule-of-mixture]) analytical models, statistical formulation, and finite element analysis in conjunction with multi-scale progressive failure analysis. The book compares the predictions with test data and is shown to cover static, explicit, and fracture mechanics types of loading conditions.
