About the book

High-performance fiber-reinforced polymer/ceramic/metal composites are the current state-of-the-art for lightweight structures and their use is rising exponentially in a wide range of applications. They offer outstanding mechanical properties: high strength and stiffness, low weight, and low susceptibility to fatigue and corrosion. This book will be focused on the next-generation fiber-reinforced composites, which possess better mechanical properties for engineering applications. For polymer-matrix composites (PMCs), works regarding the research contents of fabrication methods, testing and theoretical analysis for high mechanical properties (i.e., tensile, compression, and shear, et al.) and related damage mechanisms are welcome. For ceramic-matrix composites (CMCs), the works on the fabrication methods and high-temperature mechanical properties related to durability, fatigue, creep, and damage mechanisms and theoretical predictions are welcome. For metal-matrix composites (MMCs), the investigations on the fabrication methods and mechanical properties of MMCs are also welcome to be submitted.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

M.Sc. Iva Ribic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
