This book is a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of self-reinforced polymer composites (SRCs) science and technology. After introducing the fundamental characteristics of SRCs, ample space is given to manufacturing, processing, and characterization techniques. The approach is didactic and focused on applications, which makes the book ideal for students and practitioners.
Contains details on many industrial applications such as biomedical applications, ceramic SRCs, superconducting SRCs.
Includes material selection guidelines.
Also looks at enviromental and economic issues.
With projections on the future of SRCs.
