Advances in Composite Material
  • Description
  • Author(s) Information

A composite material (also called a composition material) is a material made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties that, when combined, produce a material with characteristics different from the individual components. The individual components remain separate and distinct within the finished structure. The new material may be preferred for many reasons: common examples include materials which are stronger, lighter, or less expensive when compared to traditional materials. More recently, researchers have also begun to actively include sensing, actuation, computation and communication into composites, which are known as Robotic Materials. Composite materials are generally used for buildings, bridges, and structures such as boat hulls, swimming pool panels, race car bodies, shower stalls, bathtubs, storage tanks, imitation granite and cultured marble sinks and countertops. The most advanced examples perform routinely on spacecraft and aircraft in demanding environments.


In the present book, fifteen typical literatures about composite material published on international authoritative journals were selected to introduce the worldwide newest progress, which contains reviews or original researches on material science, technical fabrics, industrial products, composition material, ect. We hope this book can demonstrate advances in composite material as well as give references to the researchers, students and other related people.
