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.
