Selected from 120 presentations, the 37 papers consider materials for protecting civilians and soldiers against vehicle collision, blast, fragmentation, and unconventional attack; they also discuss multi-functional materials for enhancing civilian and soldier performance in extreme conditions. The topics include the atomic-layer deposition of thin inorganic coatings into renewable packaging materials, developing woven enhanced silk fabric for ballistic protection, novel piezoelectric tactile sensor materials with improved properties, enhancing the char resistance of expandable graphite-based intrumescent fire retardant coatings by using multi-wall carbon nano tubes for structural steel, developing new sol-gel surface treatments formulation for the bonded repair of aircraft, and the laminated microstructure and toughness mechanism of abalone shell.
