This book addresses a broad spectrum of areas in both hybrid materials and hierarchical composites, including recent development of processing technologies, structural designs, modern computer simulation techniques, and the relationships between the processing-structure-property-performance. Each topic is introduced at length with numerous and detailed examples and over 150 illustrations. In addition, the authors present a method of categorizing these materials, so that representative examples of all material classes are discussed.Table 5.1 Examples of applications of nanoclay-reinforced polymer matrix composites Product Usage Mitsubishi gas ...
