Volume 2: Nanocomposites

Second volume in the American Society for Composites' Series on Advances in Composite Materials

Editors: Tsu-Wei Chou, University of Delaware; Chin-Teh Sun, Purdue University

Managing Editor: Michael W. Hyer

ISBN: 978-1-60595-073-0, ©2012, 240 pages, 6×9, Soft cover

  • Technologies for reinforcing composites with nanotubes, nanofibers and graphene
  • New data on dispersion, alignment and interfacial bonding
  • Methods for enhancing conductivity and strength

This bound edition contains updated and previously unpublished research papers on using nanomaterials to improve the performance and properties of composites. The book covers all phases of nanocomposite synthesis–from design and multiscale modeling to processing and testing. Special attention is devoted to problems of dispersion and interfacial bonding and to using nanoparticles to enhance electrical properties in composites. The volume is the second in the American Society for Composites Series on Advances in Composite Materials under the general editorship of Michael Hyer of Virginia Tech. Contributions on Nanocomposites selected for this volume and others in the series are edited and updated versions of ASC presentations made during the past nine years and until now available only via CD-ROM.
