    • Emerging, though very rapidly growing field: very important for current research as well as training of young scientists.
    • Biomedical Compositescience and technology is a very timely and strongly interdisciplinary field which needs interaction between chemists, physicists, engineers and biologists.
    • Biomedical Composites are high potential materials due to special, new and unique mechanical and physical properties.
    • The Series will be THE comprehensive reference: it covers properties and performance of composite materials, including fibrous and particulate reinforcements in polymeric, metallic and ceramic matrices and 'natural' composites (wood and biological materials, etc.), such as physical and chemical properties, microstructural characterization of composites, design and manufacture of composites and structures, mechanical behaviour in use environments, testing and characterisation techniques, modelling and optimization methods, fracture, creep, tribology, machinability, and performance of composites in service.

    Aims and Scope

    Composite materials are engineered materials, made from two or more constituents with significantly different physical or chemical properties which remain separate on a macroscopic level within the finished structure. Due to their special mechanical and physical properties they have the potential to replace conventional materials in various fields such as the biomedical industry.
