About this book

This book will be a one-stop-shop for readers seeking information on lightweight composites made from multiple materials via diverse processing technologies. The lightweight composites are featured for their potential to be basic construction units in a variety of areas, especially automotive, civil engineering, aerospace engineering, etc. Emphasis will be on how fibers or fibrous structures reinforce the composites. The subject of the book is to provide a comprehensive understanding on the raw materials, processing technologies, performance properties, and end uses of lightweight composites.

About the authors

Dr. Yiqi Yang is a distinguished professor in the Department of Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, Nebraska, United States. Dr. Yang received his PhD in Textile Science from Purdue University. He has extensive research experience in development of green materials including polymers and chemicals obtained from natural resources for textile, composite, and medical applications. He also has wide connection with textile industries across the world. He organized a symposium, “Light-Weight Materials from Biopolymers” for Division of Cellulose and Renewable Materials, in 246th American Chemical Society National Meeting (Indianapolis, IN, United States) in 2013. Based on the symposium, he edited a symposium series book composed of cutting-edge chapters related to lightweight materials contributed by experts from both academia and industries.

Dr. Jianyong Yu is an academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering. He obtained his PhD degree from Donghua University. He is currently a professor in Donghua University, and services as vice director of China Textile Engineering Society. He has been constantly striving to research and teaching in the area of textile materials, with focus on exploring basic theories, developing key technologies, and investigating industrial applications of innovative natural fibers, synthetic fibers, yarns, and functional textiles. Based on his contribution to the Chinese textile industry and academia, he received two second prizes of National Award for Technological Innovation and two second prizes of National Award for Progress in Science and Technology.

Dr. Helan Xu is a research assistant professor in the Department of Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, Nebraska, United States. She received her PhD in Textile Sciences from University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Her research interests lie in developing industrial and biomedical products from agricultural byproducts and wastes. She has published papers on developing different lightweight materials, such as green composites, three-dimensional ultrafine fibrous scaffolds, hollow nanoparticles from chicken feathers, corn distillers grain, soy meal and other animal and plant originated residues for biomedical, textile and other industrial applications. She has also co-edited a symposium series book with Dr. Yiqi Yang published by American Chemical Society in 2015.

Dr. Baozhong Sun is a professor of Donghua University, Shanghai, China. He obtained his PhD degree in the specification of textile reinforced composites at Donghua University, joined College of Textiles of Donghua University in 2006, and became a full professor in 2012. He currently teaches courses of machine design, mechanics of materials and fracture mechanics in textile composites. His research interest is primarily focused on impact behavior, failure, and fracture of textile composite materials and textiles. He has participated in a number of key national projects and has served in organizing committees of a number of international conferences. He has authored and coauthored more than 120 papers regarding textile composite materials published in international journals and conference proceedings, and coauthored a book, “Impact Dynamics of the Textile Structural Composite Materials”, published by Science Press, Beijing, China.
