MECHANICS OF COMPOSITE MATERIALS
MECHANICS OF COMPOSITE MATERIALSby Michael W. Hyer and Scott W. CaseThis section deals with some of the basic issues that must be addressed when applying the classic methods of mechanics of materials to predict the mechanical behavior of fiber-reinforced composite materials. The section deals exclusively with the mechanical behavior of materials that consist of stiff and strong fibers, such as glass, carbon, or aramid, embedded in a softer material, such as a thermosetting or thermoplastic polymer, known as the matrix material, or simply, the matrix. The role of the fiber is to carry the load, while the role of the matrix is to keep the fibers aligned, transfer the load from fiber to fiber, and protect t…
