About this book

The updated and expanded second edition of this book explores the physical and mechanical properties of carbon fibers and their composites, their manufacture and processing, and their current and emerging applications. 

Over 10 chapters, the book describes manufacturing methods, surface treatment, composite interfaces, and microstructure-property relationships with underlying fundamental physical and mechanical principles. It discusses the application of carbon materials in delivering improved performance across a diverse range of fields including sports, wind energy, oil and gas, infrastructure, defence, and the aerospace, automotive and semiconductor industries.

This new edition introduces chapters related to the manufacturing of carbon/carbon composites (C/C composites), antioxidation characteristics of C/C composites, and their applications. Furthermore, it addresses the effect of graphene and carbon nanotubes on the physical and chemical properties of carbon fibers.  A final chapter looks at the emerging and future prospects for carbon fiber technology.

About the authors

Soo-Jin PARK is a professor in the department of chemistry at Inha University. He received his Ph.D. in 1992 carried out under the supervision of Prof. Jean-Baptiste DONNET from Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), France. His research interests include carbon materials for energy conversion and storage, curing catalysts and polymer-carbon composites, green adsorption device with porous carbons, and so on.

Reviews

“Park (Inha Univ., Korea) offers a well-illustrated survey of the field of carbon science and technology. … this book provides a fine survey of the field of CF science and technology. It will appeal to professionals in the CF field and those interested in entering it. Summing Up: Recommended. Advanced undergraduates through faculty and professionals.” (A. M. Strauss, Choice, Vol. 56 (5), January, 2019)
