This book is the first to respond to the growing need for a completely up-to-date technical overview of some increasingly valuable materials - carbon and graphite fiber composites. Their properties,
uses, and applications are all examined here. Delmonte offers a step-by-step examination of the qualities, characteristics, advantages and disadvantages of carbon and graphite fiber composites. He clearly analyzes resin
binders of advanced composite materials and their reinforcing fibers and nonresin binders such as metal matrices, as well as hybrid structures involving multiple fibers and resins. Engineers, industrial managers, and
other professionals will benefit greatly from this all-encompassing volume.
