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:
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.
