  • Important reference book on composites materials manufacturing technologies from Vietnamese, as well Japanese and Canadian researchers

Edited by three internationally regarded materials science professors, this book is an important expansion of a series presenting composites research from Canada and Japan. For the first time it adds dozens of original papers from Vietnamese materials scientists to reports from Japanese and Canadian researchers. The book covers new materials, such as energy-producing composites, and offers information on advanced manufacturing technologies for fiber-reinforced materials, as well as metal hybrids, active, self-healing and biocomposites. Applications include biomedical implants, piping, automobile parts, fiber-optic sensors, and more.
