DEStech Publications, Inc. announces the publication of Proceedings of the American Society for Composites, edited by Michael Hyer, Suong Hoa, Ozden Ochoa and Mehdi Hojjati.
Over 190 original papers covering all phases of composite materials engineering are contained in this searchable CD-ROM. The papers, published here for the first time, describe a wide range of materials science research reported at the annual meeting of the American Society for Composites, held Sept. 26-28, 2011, in collaboration with the Canadian Association for Composite Structures and Materials.
Major divisions of the document include: Bio-Inspired Composites; Damage; Dynamic Effects on Composites; Nanotechnology; Manufacturing; Mechanical Behavior; Failure and Fatigue; Office of Naval Research; Penetration; Properties; Structural Applications; Textiles; and Time-Dependent Response.
The CD-ROM displays figures and illustrations in articles in full color along with a title screen and main menu screen. Each user can link to all papers from the Table of Contents and Author Index and also link to papers and front matter by using the global bookmarks, which allow navigation of the entire CD-ROM from every article. Search features on the CD-ROM can be by full text including all key words, article title, author name, and session title. The CD-ROM has Autorun feature for Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 or higher products along with the program for Adobe Acrobat Reader with Search 9.0. One year of technical support is included with your purchase of this product.
