Description

In chapters contributed by 24 nanotechnology laboratories, this book combines wide-ranging research relevant to the development of multifunctional materials, focusing on synthesis, manufacturing techniques, and modeling. It defines functional materials and discusses techniques that are designed to improve material properties, durability, multifunctionality, and adaptability. It also examines sensors and actuators fabricated from nanostructured microdevices for structural health and performance monitoring. The authors emphasize the current and potential commercial applications of nanoengineered smart materials, such as nanocoatings to create "artificial skin" and functionalized nanotubes used for enhancing the properties of composite materials and for hydrogen sensing and storage. A solutions manual is available for those qualified instructors who are looking to turn this professional reference into a classroom resource.
