Download or read book entitled Brittle Matrix Composites 8 written by A. M. Brandt and published by Woodhead Pub Limited online. This book was released on 17 January 2022 with total pages 600. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The subjects of the Symposia are on composite materials with matrices behaving as brittle in normal or special conditions. Brittle matrix composites are applied in various domains (civil engineering, mechanical equipment and machinery, vehicles, etc.) and in the last decades their importance is increasing together with their variety. papers include: aggregate-binder composites (concretes, fiber concretes, rocks); sintered materials (ceramics); high strength composites with brittle matrices. In principle, the general problems of structures made of composite materials are not included in the papers. Various approaches to the material engineering problems are presented in the papers. Among others: Design and optimization of the structure of materials; Theoretical considerations and computational methods; Models of materials and prediction of material properties; Test methods and new test results; Manufacturing processes; Applications of new materials and their behaviour in service; Durability assessments and environmental effects.
