Advanced composite materials or high performance polymer composites are an unusual class of materials that possess a combination of high strength and modulus and are substantially superior to structural metals and alloys on an equal weight basis. The book provides an overview of the key components that are considered in the design of a coomposite. Prime advanced composite materials application areas encompass ballistics/armor/ordnance, commercial/military air craft, sports/leisure, tooling, aerospace, automotive and other market areas that require these materials on a cost/performance basis.
