High Strain Rate Behavior of Nanocomposites and Nanocoatings
This book describes the use of multiwall carbon nanotubes as composites with polycarbonates and as protective coatings on glass surfaces. The book explains fabrication and characterization methods for these composites and coatings. The author reports on the use of Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar set up for evaluating the dynamic strength of these composites and coatings and studying the role of carbon nanotubes in the enhancement of their dynamic strength.
Describes the uses of carbon nanotubes as protective and energy absorbing coatings on weak base materialsExamines the strength of polymer composites under dynamic loadingDetails results for development of materials in the defense and aviation industries
