Advice for Book

Composite Airframe Structures, Michael Niu.
Composite MAterials for Aircraft Structures, Hoskin and Baker (Cheaper if your an AIAA member and get it from AIAA)
Anything by Martin Holman.

RE: Advice for Book

Thanks a lot Astroclone, really useful info and links. I tried to give you a star, but something is wrong in the site... thanks anyway!!!

RE: Advice for Book

Try: Engineered Materials Handbook, Volume One: "Composites," ASM International (Materials Park, OH; 1987).

RE: Advice for Book

Also try Structural Analysis of Laminated Anisotropic Plates by James Whitney.


Engineering Mechanics of Composite Materials by Isaac M. Daniel and Ori Ishai.

Both were helpful to me.
