Polymer Composites 3 Volume Set 9783527329854



Polymer Composites 3 Volume SetBy  Sabu Thomas / Kuruvilla Joseph / S. K. Malhotra / Koichi Goda M. S. Sreekala


The first systematic reference on the topic with an emphasis on the characteristics and dimension of the reinforcing filler
Volume One
 begins by discussing the state of the art, new challenges, and opportunities of macro and micro composites.
Volume Two focuses on nanoparticles, investigating their synthesis, surface modification and characterization, as well as the manufacturing technology of nanocomposites and their interface modification and characterization.
Volume Three on biocomposites discusses the synthesis, structure and properties of natural and synthetic biopolymers, as well as the preparation, microstructure and properties of biofibers, together with their surface modification, characterization, and manufacturing.
From the Back Cover
Polymer composites are materials in which the matrix polymer is reinforced with organic/inorganic fillers of a definite size and shape, leading to enhanced performance of the resultant composite. These materials find a wide number of applications in such diverse fields as geotextiles, building, electronics, medical, packaging, and automobiles. 
This first systematic reference on the topic emphasizes the characteristics and dimension of this reinforcement. The authors are leading researchers in the field from academia, government, industry, as well as private research institutions across the globe, and adopt a practical approach here, covering such aspects as the preparation, characterization, properties and theory of polymer composites. 
The book begins by discussing the state of the art, new challenges, and opportunities of various polymer composite systems. Interfacial characterization of the composites is discussed in detail, as is the macro- and micromechanics of the composites. Structure-property relationships in various composite systems are explained with the help of theoretical models, while processing techniques for various macro- to nanocomposite systems and the influence of processing parameters on the properties of the composite are reviewed in detail. The characterization of microstructure, elastic, viscoelastic, static and dynamic mechanical, thermal, tribological, rheological, optical, electrical and barrier properties are highlighted, as well as their myriad applications. 
Divided into three volumes: Vol. 1. Macro- and Microcomposites; Vol. 2. Nanocomposites; and Vol. 3. Biocomposites.
