Vaidya (materials science and engineering, U. of Alabama-Birmingham) surveys the use of composite materials in transportation contexts other than the much-touted airplanes, and describes how they are processed for such use. Among the topics are reinforcements for automotive and transportation applications, material forms, processes based on continuous and on discontinuous reinforcement, mechanics and design tips, composite manufacturing process analysis for automotive parts, carbon fiber, performance cars, heavy trucks and mass transit, joining and adhesives, biocomposites, and recycling and environmental aspects.
