Hierarchical Composite Materials
Ed. by Kumar, Kaushik / Davim, J. Paulo
Series:Advanced Composites 11
- Covers advanced composite materials found in nature and industry
- Addresses ordering from the atomic-scale up to the microstructure
- Uses theory to explain control of materials' properties
Aims and Scope
Hiearchical Composite Materials contains in-depth analysis of a class of advanced composites that have properties that are anisotropic due to structural organization at different length scales. Chapters will address how ordering occurs from the atomic-scale up to the microstructure and how control of these factors leads to the final materials' properties. This book is ideal for materials scientists, mechanical engineers, chemists and physicsts.
