Engineering With Fibers
In 15 chapters, fiber scientists and engineers from North America, New Zealand, and Asia examine green and sustainable materials for composites. They discuss the case for using these materials, then sustainable materials for resins, sustainable fibers for composite applications, combinations of sustainable fibers and resins for green composites, and waste materials for composites. Specifically, they describe biopolymers as resins for the fabrication of films and nanocomposites, vegetable oil-based resins and composites, soy and starch-based resins, sustainable additives, cellulosic fibers, the use of feathers in textile applications, natural fiber composites from agricultural by-products, polysaccharide composites, green composites using bamboo, renewable biobased composites for civil engineering applications, natural fiber composites and their hollow core panels, the physical and chemical properties of alkali-activated fly ash materials, the mechanical properties of natural fiber composites, and stochastic processes in modeling the strength of composites.
