Sustainable and Nonconventional Construction Materials Excerpt :

Inorganic bonded fiber composites consist of building materials such as wood-cement board or wood-gypsum board. The materials contain a wood fiber or particle element that is bonded within an inorganic mineral matrix. Aged wood waste frequently signifies better than virgin wood in this application. Degradation of wood fiber's hemicellulose improves wood-cement bonding strength. These weather and fire-resistant products are produced for sub-flooring panelboard, roofing shakes or shingles, tiles, siding, fencing, cladding, or building blocks. Over the last years promising cement bonded wood composites for structural purposes have evolved. Durability, toughness, high dimensional stability, resistance against environmental influences such as biodegradation or weathering but also availability of the raw material as well as economic factors are features which can make cement-bonded composites superior to conventionally bonded composites. Many composites have evolved in the last decades, e.g. cement-bonded wood wool boards, cement- bonded particleboards, and fiber-reinforced cement boards. These CBCs are used for thermal as well as acoustic insulation purposes and consist of particles of different sizes (strands, flakes, chips, fibers). Sustainable and Nonconventional Construction Materials using Inorganic Bonded Fiber Composites gives a comprehensive review of the innovative research concerned with building components based on inorganic bonded composites. It looks at both natural fibers as reinforcing elements and substitute inorganic binders based on agricultural and industrial wastes. This book reviews the relationship of diverse parameters, including density and particle size on mechanical and physical properties of cement bonded composites. It also focuses on the significance and functions of fibrous composites as construction materials and components. Covering the significance and characterization of non-conventional cementitious composites, this book will be of imme

Fiber Reinforced Composites Excerpt :

Polymer-based fibre-reinforced composites FRC’s have now come out as a major class of structural materials being used or regarded as substituent’s for metals in several critical components in space, automotive and other industries (marine, and sports goods) owing to their low density, strength-weight ratio, and fatigue strength. FRC’s have several commercial as well as industrial applications ranging from aircraft, space, automotive, sporting goods, marine, and infrastructure. The above-mentioned applications of FRC’s clearly reveal that FRC’s have the potential to be used in a broad range of different engineering fields with the added advantages of low density, and resistance to corrosion compared to conventional metallic and ceramic composites. However, for scientists/researchers/R&D’s to fabricate FRC’s with such potential there should be careful and precise design followed by suitable process development based on properties like mechanical, physical, and thermal that are unique to each application. Hence the last few decades have witnessed considerable research on fibre reinforced composites. Fibre Reinforced Composites: Constituents, Compatibility, Perspectives and Applications presents a widespread all-inclusive review on fibre-reinforced composites ranging from the different types of processing techniques to chemical modification of the fibre surface to enhance the interfacial adhesion between the matrix and fibre and the structure-property relationship. It illustrates how high value composites can be produced by efficient and sustainable processing methods by selecting different constituents [fibres and resins]. Researchers in academia working in composites and accompanying areas [materials characterisation] and industrial manufacturers who need information on composite constituents and how they relate to each other for a certain application will find the book extremely useful when they need to make decisions about materials selection for their
