Micromechanics of Composite Materials: A Generalized Multiscale Analysis Approach brings together comprehensive background information on the multiscale nature of the composite, constituent material behaviour, damage models and key techniques for multiscale modelling, as well as presenting the findings and methods, developed over a lifetime’s research, of three leading experts in the field.
The unified approach presented in the book for conducting multiscale analysis and design of conventional and smart composite materials is also applicable for structures with complete linear and nonlinear material behavior, with numerous applications provided to illustrate use.
Modeling composite behaviour is a key challenge in research and industry; when done efficiently and reliably it can save money, decrease time to market with new innovations and prevent component failure. This book provides the tools and knowledge from leading micromechanics research, allowing researchers and senior engineers within academia and industry with to improve results and streamline development workflows.Brings together for the first time the findings of a lifetime’s research in micromechanics by recognized leaders in the fieldProvides a comprehensive overview of all micromechanics formulations in use today and a unified approach that works for the multiscale analysis and design of multi-phased composite materials, considering both small strain and large strain formulationsCombines otherwise disparate theory, code and techniques in a step-by-step manner for efficient and reliable modeling of composites

The monograph shows the ways of disharmony elimination in the modern world, beginning of new epoch and civilizational changes, and the need for broad partnership of East and West, all continents in the face of global challenges to the nations is based here.
The book is intended for workers of science and education, PhD candidates, graduate students, and students engaged in scientific research in the fields of economics, finance, sociology, political science, demography, and other branches of social sciences and humanities. It is of great interest to practitioners and to all the readers who are conscious about the choice of vector of harmonious development of the countries.
Robert Arnold is a lifetime resident of Virginia and currently the President of Eagle Eye Enterprises LLC, a company he founded in 1997. Eagle Eye Enterprises offers RADAR and LASER training, agency evaluations, and consulting to Law Enforcement agencies nationwide. Mr. Arnold developed RADAR and LASER training software that is in use nationwide, to include Northern Virginia Criminal Justice Academy. His training and software has raised the bar in police training and has set the industry standard to an unprecedented level. He has trained and developed NVCJA instructors in the field of RADAR.
Master Police Officer Arnold retired in March of 2011 from the Prince William County Police Department after serving over twenty-seven years. He is a founding member of his department's Motor Squad that was created in 1987 and he remained there until his 2011 retirement.
During his Police career he served ten years as a Special Weapons and Tactics team member, Certified DCJS Instructor in the areas of RADAR, LASER, Police Motorcycle, and Emergency Vehicle Operator Course (EVOC). He received countless commendations for his work throughout his career. He authored his department's motor squad operational and training manuals and escort protocol. He developed and implemented his motor squad's training program and provided continuous motorcycle training and retraining to all squad members until his 2011 retirement. His motorcycle training approach included a skills level evaluation program that measured individual riding levels. This program was divided into five categories of riding proficiency that proved to develop a rider's incentive to set goals to achieve greater riding skills...
Shortly after attending a Virginia Instructor Development course in 1990 and successfully completing his RADAR Instructor certification through the Virginia Commonwealth University, he developed a speed enforcement training program that he managed and retained the Lead Instructor role until his retirement. His program evolved over the years and is considered an industry leading training program throughout the nation. He is considered an expert in his field and has provided expert testimony during RADAR and LASER cases in the Circuit Courts of Prince William and Madison counties.
The Prince William County Police Department was the first Law Enforcement Agency in Virginia to use the speed measuring device, LIDAR. Robert is credited with its implementation and provided LIDAR training seminars throughout the state of Virginia to assist other jurisdictions during their startup phase. His efforts lead to the successful statewide expansion of this speed measuring equipment that resulted in legislation authorizing the use statewide.
Robert's career roles included adjunct Instructor positions with the Prince William County and the Northern Virginia Criminal Justice Academies. He provided instruction to hundreds of law enforcement students in the operation of emergency vehicles and police motorcycles. He devoted his entire career to achieving expert status in his field and has shared his expertise through the training of countless Law Enforcement Officials.
