Interfaces In Particle Reinforced Composites: From Macro to Nano Scales addresses recent research findings on the particle-matrix interface at different length scales. The main thrust is on reinforcement of materials by particles that can result in a composite material of high stiffness and strength, but more importantly, how the particle interacts with the (matrix) material, which may be a polymer, biological-based material, ceramic or conventional metal. The different types of particle reinforced composites are discussed according to the respective matrix materials. The particles of concern may be made from a variety of materials, and can assume a variety of sizes and shapes; the criterion is that the particles must reduce the load in the matrix by taking up a share of the load. The load transfer occurs at the particle-matrix interface. Thus, judicious selection of materials for the particles and matrix, and structure of the particles, including consideration for interfacial effects, is important in the development of composite materials with the desired bulk mechanical properties.

While the nature of the interface depends largely on the processing approach for the composite, interfacial properties of different composites are not always clearly understood. In recent years, advanced characterization methods have been applied to test materials from macroscopic to nanoscopic length scales, complemented by computational approaches. Significant progress has also been made to apply these approaches to explore the particle-matrix interface. This book is timely as it aims to bring together current discussion of recent research findings on the particle-matrix interface at different length scales.
