Multi-Functional Materials and Structures III
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
It has become a essential but formidable task for all industries to concentrate on developing Nature-friendly products and services. The present work aims to bring together the current knowledge concerning Nature-friendly multi-functional materials and structures. The contributions concentrate on natural fiber composites, smart materials and structures, and advanced composites and their applications, and so on. Readers will find within the most up-to-date advances in the field of multi-functional materials and structures.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: MFMS 2010, held in September, in Jeonju, Korea, was the third such conference, and this two-volume set contains the proceedings. Approximately 400 papers are arranged in thematic sections addressing topics that include advanced composites and their applications, biomaterials and biomimetics, damage identification, modeling and analysis, nano-materials, non-destructive evaluation technology, smart materials and structures, tribology, materials for fuel cells and solar cells, and natural fiber composites. A more specific sampling of topics: polymerization shrinkage of dental restoration material in cavities, the dynamics of flower head movement in bio-system, the synthesis and characterization of silk fiber reinforced cepu composites, magnetic field actuation of shape memory nanocomposites, the effect of ceramic fillers on mechanical properties of bamboo fiber reinforced epoxy composites, fully degradable jute fiber reinforced polylactide composites applicable to car interiors, and studies of natural rubber grafted with acrylic monomers.
