Longtime and widespread use of certain abbreviations, such as R.S.V.P., has made them better understood standing alone than spelled out.

Fatigue and Fracture of Fibre Metal Laminates
This book contributes to the field of hybrid technology, describing the current state of knowledge concerning the hybrid material concept of laminated metallic and composite sheets for primary aeronautical structural applications. It is the only book to date on fatigue and fracture of fibre metal laminates (FMLs). The first section of the book provides a general background of the FML technology, highlighting the major FML types developed and studied over the past decades in conjunction with an overview of industrial developments based on filed patents. In turn, the second section discusses the mechanical response to quasi-static loading, together with the fracture phenomena during quasi-static and cyclic loading. To consider the durability aspects related to strength justification and certification of primary aircraft structures, the third section discusses thermal aspects related to FMLs and their mechanical response to various environmental and acoustic conditions.

Contact Mechanics and Friction: Physical Principles and Applications
This application-oriented book introduces readers to the associations and relationships between contact mechanics and friction, providing them with a deeper understanding of tribology. It addresses the related phenomena of contacts, adhesion, capillary forces, friction, lubrication, and wear from a consistent point of view. The author presents (1) methods for rough estimates of tribological quantities, (2) simple and general methods for analytical calculations, and (3) the crossover into numerical simulation methods, the goal being to convey a consistent view of tribological processes at various scales of magnitude (from nanotribology to earthquake research). The book also explores the system dynamic aspects of tribological systems, such as squeal and its suppression, as well as other types of instabilities and spatial patterns. It includes problems and worked-out solutions for the respective chapters, giving readers ample opportunity to apply the theory to practical situations and to deepen their understanding of the material discussed. The second edition has been extended with a more detailed exposition of elastohydrodynamic lubrication, an updated chapter on numerical simulation methods in contact mechanics, a new section on fretting in the chapter on wear, as well as numerous new exercises and examples, which help to make the book an excellent reference guide.

Mathematical Modeling of Disperse Two-Phase Flows
This book develops the theoretical foundations of disperse two-phase flows, which are characterized by the existence of bubbles, droplets or solid particles finely dispersed in a carrier fluid, which can be a liquid or a gas. Chapters clarify many difficult subjects, including modeling of the interfacial area concentration. Basic knowledge of the subjects treated in this book is essential to practitioners of Computational Fluid Dynamics for two-phase flows in a variety of industrial and environmental settings. The author provides a complete derivation of the basic equations, followed by more advanced subjects like turbulence equations for the two phases (continuous and disperse) and multi-size particulate flow modeling. As well as theoretical material, readers will discover chapters concerned with closure relations and numerical issues. Many physical models are presented, covering key subjects including heat and mass transfers between phases, interfacial forces and fluid particles coalescence and breakup, amongst others. This book is highly suitable for students in the subject area, but may also be a useful reference text for more advanced scientists and engineers.

Smart Adhesively Bonded Composite Joints: Analysis & Design
Due to their inherent advantages over mechanical-fastening methods, the use of adhesively bonded composite joints has been significantly increased in recent years for joining composite beams, panels, tubes, etc., which are fundamental components in civilian, military and aeronautic structures. Because the applied load in the adherends is always transferred in the form of shear and/or peel stresses through the adhesive layer, the stress concentration developed in the end regions at the adhesive bondline is the principal reason for causing the premature and catastrophic failure of adhesively bonded joints. This has always been a dilemma for the designers of such joints. In order to reduce the peel/shear stresses concentration and improve the joint strength, some traditional mechanical methods have been developed as practical solutions to reduce the stress concentration, such as rounding off sharp edges, spewing fillets, and tapering adherends. These methods are passive in reducing stress concentration, i.e., they are ineffective unless the pattern and magnitude of the applied loads are fixed. Comparing to these traditional mechanical enhancement methods, an active smart strength improvement method for adhesively bonded composite joint is introduced in this book to adaptively realise the reduction of peel/shear stress concentration through the integrated piezoelectric layers as sensor/actuator in the composite joint system. This type of joint is smart because, on one hand, the integrated piezoelectric layers can serve as sensors to monitor the joint system deformation; on the other hand, the piezoelectric layers also serve as actuators to produce a counter-balancing force or moment. In such smart joints, counter-balancing forces and moments can be adaptively produced by adjusting the applied electric fields to the integrated piezoelectric layers based on the information as sensors. The additional forces and moments can be controlled to act oppositely to those developed internally by the payloads, thereby alleviating the stress concentration in the joint edges and smartly improve the joint strength. In this book, the fundamental concept of the proposed smart adhesively bonded composite joint method is firstly introduced, and then, the details in designing and analysing such joints under various loading conditions are systematically discussed, including single-lap and single-strap smart composite joints subjected to tensile loading, and smart composite pipe joints subjected to axial tension or bending.
