  • Description Comprehensive Composite Materials is the electronic version of the six volume print resource in the Wendt Library reference collection. CCM covers key aspects of naturally occurring and synthetic composite materials, including history, reinforcements, matrix materials, mechanical properties, physical properties, theory, structural design, structural analysis, manufacturing processes, quality assurance, test methods, applications, recycling and disposal. Classes of materials covered include polymer matrix composites, metal matrix composites, ceramic matrix composites, carbon/carbon composites, and cement and concrete composites. CCM also covers smart materials as they relate to composites, including process monitoring, embedded sensors and actuators, and damage detection. The database includes more than 4,000 figures and approximately 15,000 references. (Updates vary)
