Description

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

Readership
