Emphasizing the static and dynamic behaviors of porous nanocomposite structures in the framework of continued mechanics-based approaches, Mechanics of Nanocomposites: Homogenization and Analysis investigates matrices strengthened via various nanofillers such as carbon nanotubes, graphene platelets, and graphene oxide powders. It covers equivalent properties of nanocomposites that are obtained via homogenization techniques based on micromechanics approaches. In addition, this comprehensive book:

    • Discusses the effects of various nanofillers and identifies those that improve nanocomposite stiffness
    • Presents a wide range of analytical and numerical solution procedures
    • Investigates the effects of porosity along with mechanical characteristics of nanocomposites
    • Performs analyses using an energy-based approach incorporated with the strain-displacement relations of shear deformable beam, plate, or shell theorems

Aimed at researchers, academics, and professionals working across mechanical, materials, and other areas of engineering, this work ensures that readers are equipped to fully understand the mechanical characteristics of nanocomposite structures so that they can design, develop, and apply these materials effectively.
