  • New advances in nanocomposites, specialized fibers, smart composites and green composites
  • Covers braiding, electrospinning, injection molding and their monitoring

Based on a conference sponsored by the Ecole de technologie superieure and the National Research Council of Canada, this series volume comprises new and unpublished presentations on natural fiber and bioresin composites, as well as on smart materials and advanced carbon-carbon composites and other materials now being developed by Japanese and Canadian scientists. The book presents information on composite fabrication, ranging from lab-scale experiments to design, manufacturing, and testing. Application areas include bridge cables, reinforcement of concrete, wind turbine blades and more.
