Advanced Mechanics of Composite Materials and Structures (4th Edition) by Valery Vasiliev Evgeny Morozov


Advanced Mechanics of Composite Materials and Structures analyzes contemporary theoretical models at the micro- and macro levels of material structure. Its coverage of practical methods and approaches, experimental results, and optimization of composite material properties and structural component performance can be put to practical use by researchers and engineers.

Key Features

  • Presents advanced material on composite structures, including chapters on composite pressure vessels and axisymmetric deformation of composite shells of revolution
  • Provides the applications of composite materials to spacecraft, aircraft and marine included throughout
  • Practical examples of analysis and design of real composite structural components


Materials scientists, structural and design engineers, researchers, senior undergraduates, graduate students
