About this book

This book provides an overview on the latest advances in the synthesis, properties and applications of geopolymers reinforced with natural fibres such as pulp fibre, cotton, sisal, flax and hemp. The influence of adding various natural fibres and nanofillers on the mechanical properties of these composites is discussed. Potential challenges and future directions of these composites are highlighted and addressed. The content of this book caters to students, researchers and academics who are interested in the synthesis and applications of geopolymers composites.

About the authors

Prof. Low gained his B.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in Materials Engineering from Monash University prior to taking up lecturer positions first at Auckland University and then Curtin University. In 1986–1988, he conducted post-doctoral research with Prof. Y-W Mai on fracture and toughening micromechanics of epoxy systems at Sydney University. He was awarded a Visiting Professorship by the Japanese Ministry of Education to work with Prof. Niihara at Osaka University in 1995/1996. He is a fellow of the Australian Ceramic Society and serves on the editorial board of several journals. He is also the recipient of the prestigious 1996 Joint Australian Ceramic Society/Ceramic Society of Japan Ceramic Award for excellence in ceramics research. Prof. Low has authored /edited more than 12 books and is the author of over 250 archival research papers. His h-index is 45 with more than 6250 citations. His research interests include polymer and geopolymer composites, nanotechnology, toughening and failure micromechanics. He is the current WA Branch President and Federal Councillor of the Australian Ceramic Society.

 

Dr. Hasan Assaedi is working as an assistant professor in the Department of Physics at Umm Al-Qura University. He gained a bachelor's degree in Physics from King Abdulaziz University in 2002. He received his M.Sc. in Theoretical Physics from the University of Adelaide, Australia, in 2012, and then he obtained his Ph.D. in Physics from Curtin University, Perth in Western Australia, in 2017. His research focuses on developing sustainable and environmentally friendly materials such as geopolymers reinforced with ductile fibres, and he has also done research in developing optical properties of semiconductors. He has 32 peer-reviewed publications including one chapter in a book. His h-index is 8 with 484 citations according to Google Search.

 

Dr. Thamer Alomayri gained his Ph.D. degree in Materials Science from the Department of Imaging and Applied Physics at Curtin University, Australia, in 2015. He serves as a reviewer for several journals. Dr. Alomayri is the author of over 29 research papers. His h-index is 13 with more than 614 citations. His research interests include materials science research, development of geopolymer composites, application of nanoparticles, natural fibre in geopolymer and polymer nanocomposites. He currently works as an associate professor at the Faculty of Applied Science, Department of Physics, at Umm Al-Qura University, Makkah, Saudi Arabia.
