These proceedings of the International Conference on Recent Developments in Durability Analysis of Composite Systems, Duracosys 99, held in Brussels in July 1999, follows 3 other conferences on the same subject, 1990, 1995 and 1997 and covers the general problem related to the damage initiation and development, the failure criteria and the specific aspects related to fatigue, creep behaviour, moisture diffusion, temperature variations, design elements and the problems of the joining systems. Experimental aspects and nondestructive techniques are also discussed.
The content of these proceedings will be very helpful for all those, from material scientists to design engineers, who need information on the long term behaviour and structural integrity of constructions where composite materials are used.
