- Important new information on nanocomposites, application, testing and analyses
- More than 130 reports by materials specialists
- Fully searchable CD-ROM of full text including all tables and figures (including illustrations)
This fully searchable CD-ROM collection contains 132 original research papers first presented at the Twenty-first technical conference of the American Society for Composites in cooperation with the ASTM Committee D30 on Composite Materials.
Edited by a team under P.K. Mallick of the University of Michigan, this publication covers all phases of emerging trends in polymer, ceramic, and metal matrix composite materials technology, including green composites, nanocomposites, piezeolectrics, and key applications in civil engineering, heat exchange, automotive, aerospace, wind turbines, and construction. Several papers are devoted to education in the field of composite materials.
Papers are grouped under the following headings:
Fatigue and fracture * Impact * Testing * Nanocomposites * Foamed composites * Textile composites * Natural fiber composites * Pressure vessels * Multifunctional composites * Joining * Environmental effects * Analysis * Processing * Automotive/Aerospace * Civil structures * Education * Mechanical properties
The CD-ROM displays figures and illustrations in articles in full color along with a title screen and main menu screen. Each user can link to all papers from the Table of Contents and Author Index and also link to papers and front matter by using the global bookmarks which allow navigation of the entire CD-ROM from every article. Each paper has internal links from figure and table references to view the actual figures and tables and links to all e-mail addresses and URLs mentioned in any paper. Search features on the CD-ROM can be by full text including all key words, article title, author name, and session title. The CD-ROM has Autorun feature for Windows 2000 or higher products along with the program for Adobe Acrobat Reader with Search 5.0. One year of technical support is included with your purchase of the CD-ROM.
