The 100 papers range over all aspects of composite materials, with some emphasis on infrastructure applications. They discuss such topics as advanced composites fabricated from a dry powder prepreg, local and global properties in three-dimensional braided structural shapes, the stiffness and damage identification of laminated plates using static deflection, wave propagation in a functionally graded elastic medium, crack initiation in thermal barrier coatings due to interface asperity, the crushing performance of braided composites, modeling the performance of segmented piezoceramic actuators for smart materials and structures, mechanical properties of composites with a flexible interphase, durability analysis for aged polymer composites, a loop test to measure the strength of monofilaments used for advanced composites, joining metal pipe with aluminum alloy by ultrasonic cast-in insert process, externally reinforcing concrete structural members with fiber composite, and a decision model for assessing the life-cycle cost-benefit of composite materials in construction.
