Fiber-reinforced polymer composites exhibit better damping characteristics than conventional metals due to the viscoelastic nature of the polymers. There has been a growing interest among research communities and industries in the use of natural fibers as reinforcements in structural and semi-structural applications, given their environmental advantages. Knowledge of the vibration and damping behavior of biocomposites is essential for engineers and scientists who work in the field of composite materials. Vibration and Damping Behavior of Biocomposites brings together the latest research developments in vibration and viscoelastic behavior of composites filled with different natural fibers.
- Reviews the effect of various types of reinforcements on free vibration behavior
- Emphasizes aging effects, influence of compatibilizers, and hybrid fiber reinforcement
- Explores the influence of resin type on viscoelastic properties
- Covers the use of computational modeling to analyze dynamic behavior and viscoelastic properties
- Discusses viscoelastic damping characterization through dynamic mechanical analysis.
This compilation will greatly benefit academics, researchers, advanced students, and practicing engineers in materials and mechanical engineering and related fields who work with biocomposites.
