Composites Assembly for High Performance Fastener-less Structures provides a broad and balanced span of information, covering both fundamentals and applications across academic and industrial state-of-the-art research and development on assembly, joining, inspection and repair of high-performance structures made from fibre-reinforced polymer composites and multifunctional nanocomposites. This knowledge is essential for the realisation of critical features in assembly and joining evolving procedures (across their design, development and performance analysis) in such multi-material systems, but also for the through-life maintenance of composite components used in a range of engineering applications such as those composite structures utilised for wind turbine blades, automotive parts, aircraft wings and fuselage. The book also addresses the non-destructive testing methods used to detect damage occurring in composite joints, which are essential to decide if the repair is needed.
