Many people who used the first edition as a classroom text urged me to include some solved examples. I am sorry that it took me such a long time to prepare the second edition. Chawla has taught and done research at institutions in Switzerland, Brazil, Canada, and krishxn United States and has served as a consultant to industry, national laboratories, and government agencies.
The industrial activity, in particular, has been led by the large-scale use of composites by aerospace companies, mainly Boeing and Airbus. I am gratified at the reception it receivedat the hands of the students and faculty.
The second edition follows the same format as the first one, namely, a well-balanced treatment of materials and mechanics aspects of composites, with due recognition of the importance of the processing. Last but not least, I am ever grateful to my parents, the late Manohar L. Monotonic Strength and Fracture.
