Abstract

In this chapter, the authors provide the simultaneous applications of numerical and mathematical methods for engineers. The best way to ignite the fire of curiosity in the student is the validation of their ideas and learning. Specially, the engineering students learn best when they are prompted by problems. This can be achieved through the validation of their analytical results with experimental. Therefore, the scope of the present work is to synchronize of the above-mentioned two domains (numerical, experimental). Furthermore, we have approached numerical methods from an experimental perspective. Mathematical methods are techniques by which mathematical problems are developed so that these can be solved with arithmetic operations. Although, there are many forms of numerical methods, they possess one common characteristic: they invariably call for large numbers of tedious arithmetic calculations. This work intends to relate the theoretical understanding with the real world problems.

Properties Of Composite Materials

Composites are most often used as structural elements in numerous industries and operated under unstable temperature conditions, consequences in the advent of some effects of structural and dimensional instability. Finally, degradation of mechanical as well as damping (internal friction) properties of the composites may take place. That why, it is essential to study the damping properties of the composite materials. Composites having excellent damping and mechanical properties are highly desirable and widely used in many applications.
