Polymeric and Natural Composites
Materials, Manufacturing, Engineering
Ed. by Bououdina, Mohamed / Davim, J. Paulo
Discusses natural fibers in composites and covers material properties, treatment and processing, modeling, applications, and design
Shows characterization tools to investigate the basic physical and chemical properties of composite materials
Aims and Scope
Natural and synthetic polymer based composites with different fillers and nanofillers (cellulose micro- and nanofibres fromrenewable resources) for industrial, agricultural and biomedicine applications are discussed. Synthesis of environmentally friendly materials, surface modification of fillers for compatibilisation with polymer matrix and eventually recycling of plastic wastes from automobile, and electronic equipment complete the approach.
