Book Description

Composites in Biomedical Applications presents a comprehensive review of recent developments in composites and their use in biomedical applications. It features cutting-edge developments to encourage further advances in the field of composites research.

The book discusses advanced techniques for the development of composites and biopolymer-based composites. It highlights a totally new research theme in polymer-based composite materials and covers a broad range of different research fields, including polymer and natural fiber reinforcement used in the development of composites for biomedical applications. In addition, this book covers fatigue behavior, conceptual design in ergonomics design application, tissue regeneration or replacement, and skeletal bone repair of polymer composites in biomedical applications. It also discusses the latest developments in synthesis, preparation, and characterization of nano/microstructure-based materials in biomedical applications. The latest results in material evaluation for targeted applications are also presented and it highlights latest advances and future challenges in polymer composites for biomedical applications.

The book serves as a valuable reference guide for scholars interested in the synthesis of polymers and biopolymers and evaluation of nano/microstructure-based materials, as well as their biomedical applications. It also provides essential insights for graduate students and scientists pursuing research in the broad fields of composite materials, polymers, organic or inorganic hybrid materials, and nano-assembly.
