Abstract

This book deals with the mechanical and physical behavior of composites as influenced by composite geometry. This monograph provides a comprehensive introduction for researchers and students to modern composite materials research with a special emphasis on the influence of geometry to materials properties. Composite Materials enables the reader to a better understanding of the behavior of natural composites, improvement of such materials, and design of new materials with prescribed properties. A number of examples are considered in the book: Special composite properties considered are stiffness, shrinkage, hygro-thermal behavior, viscoelastic behavior, and internal stress states. Other physical properties considered are thermal and electrical conductivities, diffusion coefficients, dielectric constants and magnetic permeability. Special attention is given to the effect of pore shape on the mechanical and physical behavior of porous materials.

Abstract

This book is the first to deal comprehensively with the important topic of the fire behaviour of polymer composite materials. Composites are used in a diverse range of applications, including land and marine transport, aerospace, the chemical industry, and most branches of civil engineering infrastructure. It is our belief that fire behaviour is the single most important factor limiting the wider use of composites in many of these areas. Our aim in producing this volume is therefore to stimulate the work that is needed to overcome this fundamental problem. The first step in such a journey is, of course, to summarise what is presently known, which is what we have attempted here. This book aims to be an authoritative reference source. The book covers all of the key issues on the behaviour of polymer composites in fire. This includes a description of the thermal degradation and combustion mechanisms of composites, including the thermal decomposition reactions, reaction rates, flammable volatiles and toxic gases of organic polymers and fibres. The fire reaction properties that define the flammability and fire hazard of polymer composites are described, including time-to-ignition, heat release rate, flame spread, smoke and gaseous combustion products. The fire resistive properties of composites are also described, including the key properties of burn-through rate and mechanical integrity during and after fire.

Abstract

Nanocomposites have been receiving more and more attention given the improvement of synthesis techniques and the availability of powerful characterization techniques. The aim of the book is to introduce nanocomposite materials using a broad range of inorganic and organic solids. Furthermore, it is intended to present recent and not very common developments in especially spectroscopic characterization techniques, including Mössbauer, EXAFS, NMR. This should make the book attractive for a broad range of readers, including chemists and physicists.

Abstract

The 8th International Symposium on fracture mechanics of ceramics was held in on the campus of the University of Houston, Houston, TX, USA, on February 25-28, 2003. With the natural maturing of the fields of structural ceramics, this symposium focused on nano-scale materials, composites, thin films and coatings as well as glass. The symposium also addressed new issues on fundamentals of fracture mechanics and contact mechanics, and a session on reliability and standardization.

Abstract

"… Ceramic Materials is exceptionally comprehensive... [and] will be the standard for information on crystalline ceramics for many years." - Robert H. Doremus, New York State Science and Technology Foundation Professor of Glass and Ceramics Science, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Ceramic Materials: Science and Engineering is an up-to-date treatment of ceramic science, engineering, and applications in a single, integrated text. Building on a foundation of crystal structures, phase equilibria, defects and the mechanical properties of ceramic materials, students are shown how these materials are processed for a broad diversity of applications in today's society. Concepts such as how and why ions move, how ceramics interact with light and magnetic fields, and how they respond to temperature changes are discussed in the context of their applications. References to the art and history of ceramics are included throughout the text. The text concludes with discussions of ceramics in biology and medicine, ceramics as gemstones and the role of ceramics in the interplay between industry and the environment. The text is extensively illustrated and includes references and questions for the student.

Abstract

Hybrid Nanocomposites for Nanotechnology: Electronic, Optical, Magnetic and Biomedical Applications introduces readers to the complex development of new functional organic-inorganic nanomaterials and explores their non-traditional applications. The traditional application of these nanocomposites has been the reinforcement of plastics by the addition of inorganic fillers, exploiting the enhancement of mechanical properties for commodity plastics. Hybrid nanocomposites provide an attractive, versatile, technological platform for emerging high-added-value applications such as photovoltaic cells and light-emitting devices, lithium-ion batteries, supercapacitors, and biosensors. Composed of seventeen chapters written by leading international authors, this book covers topics such as: Synthesis of a wide range of hybrid nanocomposites based on methods including sol-gel techniques and surface grafting of nanoparticles. In-depth nanocomposite characterizations via DLS, DSC, FTIR, MALDI, NMR, SANS, SAXS, SEC, SEM, TEM, TGA, WAXS techniques. Optimization of fullerene-based resists for nanolithography. Strategies for hermetic coatings and advanced packaging of integrated circuits. Development of bioactive bone cements and drug-delivery systems. Fabrication of optical, electrochemical and magneto-biosensors. With over 2500 bibliographic citations, Hybrid Nanocomposites for Nanotechnology: Electronic, Optical, Magnetic and Biomedical Applications is an invaluable resource for scientists, engineers, and researchers in a wide variety of disciplines including materials science, surface chemistry, energy and data storage, photonics, microelectronics, pharmacy, medicine, biotechnology and bioengineering.
