- 168 new papers on emerging composite materials technology
- Fully searchable
- Special sections on structural health monitoring, composites and rehabilitation, and wood
This searchable CD-ROM collection contains 168 original research papers first presented in September 2007 at the 22nd technical conference of the American Society for Composites, held in conjunction with the Materials Science Department at the University of Washington in Seattle.
Containing original research from university professors from Japan, the USA and Europe, this collection offers technical insights into the design and applications of traditional CM, nanocomposites, natural composites, and emerging hybrids. A special session is devoted to trends in composite education and training, featuring input from Boeing company personnel.
The contents are grouped under the following headings:
T. K. O’Brien Honorary Symposium * Education * Laminate Behavior and Analysis * Crashworthiness * Characterization and Processing * Hybrid Laminates * Applications in Aeronautics and Wind Turbines * Thermoplastics * Damage Tolerance * Bonded Joints and Repairs * Nanocomposites * Foam * Multifunctional * Health Monitoring * Bioapplications * Natural Composites * New Material Forms
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.
You can find out what you need to know fast on hundreds of subjects on this fully searchable CD-ROM. Here are just a few selected key words: composite cylinders, crashworthiness, GLARE laminates, landing gear, smart surface finish, mixed-mode SIFs, nanofluidic thermal management, nanoparticulate syntactic foams, bioresorbable polymer, electrified composites, orthesis.
