The edition covers the latest theoretical and practical results of researches in the field of calculation and design of structures made of composite materials, study of their deflected mode, questions of experimental development and production of structures, economic and environmental aspects of production, methods of quality control of the manufacture and repair of structures, properties study methods of composite materials (CM), traditional and new areas of their use.
Much attention devotes development and implementation in created and perspective articles of aviation and rocket-space technology CM on the basis of polymer, metal and ceramic matrices with nanostructured elements, possessing qualitatively new properties; carbon and carbon-ceramic CM; nanocomposites; self-diagnosing and adapting to external influences intellectual polymeric CM. Questions of properties increase of polymer and metal-matrix CM through modification and strengthening of the binder by carbon nanofillers, nanoprecipitation hardening, as well as issues of obtaining heat and chemically resistant, radio transparent, radio absorbing CM, CM able to screen ionizing radiation are considered.
