Polymeric Nanocomposites with Carbonaceous Nanofillers for Aerospace Applications offers a comprehensive paperback on the aerospace relevance of polymer/carbonaceous nanofiller-based nanocomposite. This manuscript summarizes all the specific information on the design, fabrication, and application areas of aerospace industry employing polymer/carbonaceous nanofiller-based nanocomposites. Various polymeric composites have been applied in aerospace industry. However, recent aerospace research is turning towards the versatile nanocomposites. Initially, essential aspects of multifunctional nanocomposites have been discussed here considering the carbonaceous nano-reinforcements, functionalization, and dispersion of nanofillers with reference to the aeronautical applications. Consequently, various categories of polymer/carbonaceous nanofiller derived nanocomposites have been conferred for aerospace aptitude. Inclusion of carbonaceous nanofillers in polymeric resins considerably influences the properties of aeronautical nanocomposites including mechanical, thermal, non-flammability, and other physical aspects. Then, the combined effect of carbonaceous nanofillers and carbon fibers in aerospace materials have been debated. Moreover, this book points to the potential of aeronautical nanocomposites towards lightning strike, radiation shielding, anti-corrosion, electronic/optical features, thermal management, antistatic application, self-healing aptitude, and green nanocomposites. Modeling of mechanical and essential properties of aerospace nanocomposites is also discussed. Challenges and future forecasts of polymer/carbonaceous nanofiller nanocomposites have also been included for upgrading the properties for aerospace relevance. Unquestionably, the researchers do not have set entrance to such literature content before, in such a well-assembled and all-inclusive form. Future advancements in the field of aerospace related polymer/carbonaceous nanocomposites are undeniably difficult for the scientist without getting prior knowledge of the relevant space nanomaterials. Thus, this book will definitely contribute to the state-of-the-art knowledge in the field of aerospace nanocomposites.
