"To my knowledge, Professor Barbero’s current text is the only text on the market that addresses the formal teaching of the finite element analysis of composites. There is a growing demand in the composites community for such a text."
―Jim Sherwood, University of Massachusetts-Lowell, USA
"I already have a copy … and I like to use it as a reference for some topics that are related to composite structure analysis. Due to the way the book is assembled, it is perfect for a teaching course."
―Gasser F. Abdelal, Queen’s University Belfast, UK
"… a great book, covering not only essentials for mechanics and composites, but also advanced topics, bucking, viscoelasticity, failure and damage model. It is good for a reference on your shelf, text book for training and students."
―Chuanyu Feng, Oil & Gas Industry, Houston, Texas
"This book is a powerful tool to learn composite materials through computational implementations of composite structures using commercial codes. … The ANSYS codes are so well commented that it complements the examples as if they are part of the text, and because they are complete, you know that you can just copy-paste and modify the codes for your personal computer experiments, or personal projects. At the end you realize and appreciate that the structure and smart organization of the book actually has given you a thorough explanation of a tough and complex subject as it is composite materials, and modeling composite material structures.
―Fritz A. Campo, Ph.D., Blade Dynamics, LLLP.
"This text is well designed, comprehensive, and has a large number of examples and end-of-chapter problems. It is suitable for graduate students and perhaps some well-qualified undergraduates."
―Robert C Wetherhold, University at Buffalo, SUNY
"This book bridges the gap between the Finite Element analysis tools and analysis of composite structures. Extensive Finite Element examples are provided covering a wide range of topics. Although these examples are based on ANSYS, they can be applied to other software with necessary modifications. This book can be used not only as a textbook for graduate students, but also a reference for design engineers."
―An Chen, Department of Civil Engineering, University of Idaho
"I particularly like the approach in which the author explains the various concepts using very simple examples first and then take the readers to a full treatment."
―Jingzhe Pan, Department of Engineering, University of Leicester, UK
"… an excellent text of composite materials analysis for graduate students and practicing engineers. After an initial introduction to stress analysis and to finite element method the chapters introduce to the reader how to model composites with FE codes. … The BOOK provides a practical framework that allow the reader to improve and learn in several aspects: FE modeling, composites, ... and, also, to learn how to implement engineering problems in ANSYS and MatLab"
―Joan-Andreu Mayugo, Universitat de Girona (Spain)
"I think that the book gives an exhaustive explanation about the basic concepts on composite materials and their finite elements analysis."
―Antonio Madeo, University of Calabria
"I am aware of several books on vomposite materials, but this is rather unique with an equal emphasis on commercial software."
―Dr. Grama Bhashyam, ANSYS Inc.
From the Author
Design with composite materials is often conducted in a two-step process: "preliminary design" and "detailed analysis". The former is covered by "Introduction to Composite Materials Design-2nd edition" and the free online software cadec-online.com is helpful for that as well. In large aerospace companies, once preliminary design is done, the project is handed over to the "detailed analysis" team, but most often than not the whole process is done by the same person or same team. Detailed analysis is covered by my twin boons: "Finite Element Analysis of Composites Materials" Using Abaqus and Using ANSYS, both 2nd Edition. These books cover all "mechanics" aspects of the design including deformation and strength. Other topics might be relevant depending on the application are covered in "Multifunctional Composites".

This book covers not only practical examples, but theoretical explanation and implementation of computational algorithms that Nowadays are very useful in composite materials... Code Explanation make it useful for the implementation not only in Ansys, but only into your own FEM code (e.g. Matlab, C++, Fortran) or in any commercial FEM code with scripting capabilities . To my knowledge, till today, this is the only book that takes care of composite materials with strong focus on computational implementation of modern methods. PhD student, Uppsala University.
