Write-up: Long-Term Durability of Polymeric Matrix Composites presents a comprehensive knowledge-set of matrix, fibre and inter-phase behaviour under long-term aging conditions, theoretical modeling and experimental methods. This book covers long-term constituent behaviour, predictive methodologies, experimental validation and design practice. Readers will also find a discussion of various applications, including aging air craft structures, aging civil infrastructure, in addition to engines and high temperature applications.

This book also:
• Covers a wide range of polymeric matrix composite application.
• Focuses on the durability and aging of various polymeric matrix composite material.
• Describes micro-mechanical and multi-scale modeling and simulation techniques.

Long-Term Durability of Polymeric Matrix Composites is an ideal book for engineers and materials scientists designing composite structures with long-term durability and damage tolerance requirements.
