Principles of the Manufacturing of Composite Materials
Principles of the manufacturing of Composite Materials

Author: Suong V. Hoa, DEStech publications, 2009

Based on 15 years of composites manufacturing instruction, the Principles of the Manufacturing of Composite Materials is the first text to offer both a practical and analytic approach to composite manufacturing processes. It ties together key tools for analyzing the mechanics of composites with the processes whereby composite products are fabricated, whether by hand lay-up or through automated processes.

Hybrid Finite Element Method for Stress Analysis of Laminated Composites I
Hybrid Finite Element Method for Stress Analysis of Laminated Composites

Author: Suong Van Hoa, Wei Feng, Publisher: Springer, ISBN: 079238136X, Year 1998.

"The book presents the development of the partial hybrid finite element method for the stress analysis of laminated composite structures. Since there is a great need for accurate and efficient calculation of interlaminar stresses for designs using composites, the partial hybrid finite method does provide one possible solution.
Hybrid Finite Element Method for Stress Analysis of Laminated Composites will be of interest to researchers and designers of laminated composites as well as finite element method students and programmers of finite element codes."

Analysis for Design of Fiber Reinforced Plastic Vessels and Pipings
Analysis for Design of Fiber Reinforced Plastic Vessels and Pipings

Author: S.V.Hoa Publisher: Technomic Pub, ISBN: 0877628726, Year 1991.

"This book is [for] designers of fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) plastic tanks, vessels and piping, particularly those in the chemical processing industry. . .
As chemical processing equipment, these vessels and pipings have many discontinuous regions in their structures such as manhole connections, nozzles, supports, joints, etc. They are also subjected to different loadings such as internal pressure, external pressure, thermal loads, lateral loads, etc. This makes the structure of these vessels complicated."
