Characterization of Carbon Nanotube Based Composites Under Consideration of Defects (Advanced Structured Materials #39) (Hardcover)
Other Books in Series
This is book number 39 in the Advanced Structured Materials series.
This volume presents the characterization methods involved with carbon nanotubes and carbon nanotube-based composites, with a more detailed look at computational mechanics approaches, namely the finite element method. Special emphasis is placed on studies that consider the extent to which imperfections in the structure of the nanomaterials affect their mechanical properties. These defects may include random distribution of fibers in the composite structure, as well as atom vacancies, perturbation and doping in the structure of individual carbon nanotubes.
