The purpose of the present survey is to review the analysis of composite materials from the applied mechanics and engineering science point of view. The subjects under consideration will be analysis of the following properties of various kinds of composite materials: elasticity, thermal expansion, moisture swelling, viscoelasticity, conductivity (which includes, by mathematical analogy, dielectrics, magnetics, and diffusion) static strength, and fatigue failure.
