Free Access to Articles from the New Edition of Comprehensive Composite Materials
Comprehensive Composite Materials II, Second Edition is a one-stop reference work spanning the whole composites science field, covering such topics as fiber reinforcements and general theory of composites, polymer matrix composites, metal matrix composites, test methods, nondestructive evaluation and smart composites, design and application, and nanocomposites, multifunctional materials and smart materials.
Detailed coverage is also given to the development and application of the principles of multi-scale mechanics and physical model-based design methods and the incorporation of mechanisms of deformation and fracture into predictive design equations that are useful for the design engineer.
Extensive coverage of topics related to nanocomposites, including nanoscale reinforcements, such as single-wall and multi-wall nanotubes, graphene nanoplatelets, and nanodiamonds are also covered. As a taster we are providing free access to the following articles:
Self-Healing Composite Materials, by Michael W. Keller and Matthew.D Crall
Carbon Nanotube Based Fibers by Weibang Lu, Qingwen Li and Tsu-Wei Chou
Carbon Matrix Composites by R. Taylor, S.B. Venkata Siva and P.S. Rama Sreekanth
*Articles are free access until 30th November 2017
These articles are taken from the Reference Module in Materials Science and Materials Engineering
- The Reference Module combines thousands of essential articles and chapters from 13 of Elsevier’s leading Reference Works to create one interdisciplinary resource on ScienceDirect.
- Articles are continuously reviewed and updated by the expert editorial board and new articles are commissioned to cover the latest research.
- They are hosted on ScienceDirect for quick, efficient and effective searches with dynamic links to journal articles, providing your starting point for research.
Just as in real-life, the Reference Module treats topics in context rather than in isolation. Covering all areas of the field, the Reference Module provides understanding of the whole spectrum of the subject, essential for researchers and scholars working across multiple disciplines.
The highly interdisciplinary field of materials science examines elements of applied physics and chemistry, as well as chemical, mechanical, civil, and electrical engineering. Nanoscience and nanotechnology in particular have yielded major innovations in this area, such as graphene and carbon nanotubes. Elsevier’s authoritative content in this area ranges from undergraduate textbooks to multi-volume reference works investigating the relationships between the structure of materials and their properties. Our journals (including Materials Today), books, and eBooks help researchers stay abreast of developments in this swiftly advancing field, coving major sub-disciplines like energy and power; metals and alloys; ceramics; composite materials; polymer science and biomaterials; interdisciplinary materials science; and structural materials.
