Provides researchers and scientists with the latest trends in characterization and developments of composed materials and structures
Goes beyond composite materials but present general ideas of composed structures and materials is to join different componets in order to obtain in total better properties
Presents the research of well known experts on composed materials
This collection of recent activities provides researchers and scientists with the latest trends in characterization and developments of composed materials and structures. Here, the expression ‘composed materials’ indicates a wider range than the expression ‘composite material’ which is many times limited to classical fibre reinforced plastics. The idea of composed structures and materials is to join different components in order to obtain in total better properties than one of the single constituents can provide. In this collection, well known experts present their research on composed materials such as textile composites, sandwich plates, hollow sphere structures, reinforced concrete as well as classical fibre reinforced materials.
