This book presents an integrated approach to the design and manufacturing of products made of advanced composites. It is designed to teach students and practicing engineers how to streamline and improve the design process for parts and machines made out of composite materials by focusing on the behavior of composites and their constitutive relationships during the design stage. The primary market for this text will be industry-sponsored courses and practicing engineers, with some potential for use in university graduate courses in the US and abroad. The book will include a CD of the authors' own analytical software, Axiomatic CLPT (Clasdsical Laminate Plate Theory) for students and self-learners. It is part of the Oxford Series on Advanced Manufacturing (OSAM).
