About this book

This multi-author volume provides a useful summary of updated knowledge on polymer composites, practically integrating experimental studies, theoretical analyses and computational modeling at different scales, i.e. from nano- to macro- scale.  Detailed consideration is given to four major areas: Part I deals with the structure and properties of nanocomposites.  Part II focuses on some special characterization methods and modeling in the field of polymer composites.  Processing and applications of macrocomposites makes up Part III, and Part IV deals with mechanical performance of macrocomposoites.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Polymer composites have been around a long time and are extensively used in many types of applications ranging from floor tiles to stealth aircraft. … This book is an edited volume that addresses a broad range of topics in this field … . There are 18 chapters emanating mainly from European laboratories and others in the eastern hemisphere. … It will be a valuable addition to the library of any group actively developing composite materials." (Donald R. Paul, Materials Today, Vol. 10 (1-2), January-February, 2007)
