DEStech Publications Inc. (Lancaster, Pa., USA) has announced the publication of Composite Science and Technology: 2020 – Scientific and Industrial Challenges, edited by Michele Meo, Ph.D. of Bath University, U.K. This proceedings series volume comprises 132 chapters of recent scientific work in all areas of composite materials, with a focus on technologies likely to enhance composites in the foreseeable future. Such technologies, which are represented extensively in the book, include rapid manufacturing, strategies for multifunctionality, novel bio-based composites, hybrid composites and nano reinforcements. Research in this volume was first presented at the ICCST-9 conference held in Italy in spring 2013 and sponsored by Boeing, with numerous chapters focused on testing, damage and SHM in aircraft (e.g., helicopters), as well as in emerging applications like water treatment. The book includes a searchable CD-ROM. Chapters include:

  • Advanced Numerical Modelling
  • Bioinspired and Self-Healing Materials
  • Buckling of Composite Structures
  • Delamination
  • Graphene and CNTS Nanocomposites
  • Green and Bio-Composites
  • Hybrid Composites
  • Impact and Dynamic Response
  • Nano-Micro-Meso-Mechanics
  • 10Smart Composites Materials and Structures

The book has 1,053 pages and is priced at $199.95. www.destechpub.com
