Fiber-reinforced Nanocomposites: Fundamentals and Applications explores the fundamental concepts and emerging applications of fiber-reinforced nanocomposites in the automobile, aerospace, transportation, construction, sporting goods, optics, electronics, acoustics and environmental sector. In addition, the book provides a detailed overview of the properties of fiber-reinforced nanocomposites, including discussion on embedding these high-strength fibers in matrices. Due to the mismatch in structure, density, strain and thermal expansion coefficients between matrix and fibers, their thermo-mechanical properties strongly depend not only on the preparative methods, but also on the interaction between reinforcing phase and matrix phase. This book offers a concise overview of these advances and how they are leading to the creation of stronger, more durable classes of nanocomposite materials.

Key Features

  • Explores the interaction between fiber, nanoreinforcers and matrices at the nanoscale
  • Shows how the properties of fiber-enforced nanocomposites are ideal for use for a variety of consumer products
  • Outlines the major challenges to creating fiber-reinforced nanocomposites effectively


Academics and R&D industry researchers in the fields of materials science and engineering

    Fiber-Reinforced Nanocomposites: Fundamentals and Applications

    Nanotechnology is becoming a popular trend and potential filler materials for manufacturing nanobiocomposites. However, the research and informations are still not enough to execute the technology for bulk/industrial productions. In this regard, I hope this book could meet the challenges to produce nanocomposites in industrial scale.

  • Pavan P. Wed Aug 12 2020

    Useful to Postgraduate students and researchers.

    This book provides detailed information on fiber reinforced nanocomposites, their preparation, properties and applications. The book will be useful for beginners as well as the experienced researchers as well.
