Description

Experimental Characterization, Predictive Mechanical and Thermal Modeling of Nanostructures and their Polymer Composite focuses on the recent observations and predictions regarding the size-dependent mechanical properties, material properties and processing issues of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and other nanostructured materials. The book takes various approaches, including dedicated characterization methods, theoretical approaches and computer simulations, providing a detailed examination of the fundamental mechanisms governing the deviations of the properties of CNTs and other nanostructured materials. The book explores their applications in materials science, mechanics, engineering, chemistry and physics due to their unique and appealing properties.

The use of such materials is, however, still largely limited due to the difficulty in tuning their properties and morphological and structural features.

Key Features

  • Presents a thorough discussion on how to effectively model the properties of carbon nanotubes and their polymer nanocomposites
  • Includes a size-dependent analysis of properties and multiscale modeling
  • Outlines the fundamentals and procedures of computational modeling as it is applied to carbon nanotubes and other nanomaterials
