High Tech Fibrous Materials Composites B


High Tech Fibrous Materials Composites B Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This 25 chapter volume includes the science and technology of high-tech textiles in the areas of composites, biomedical fibers, protective clothing, and geotextiles. A strong mix of industrial, academic, and government contributions surveys an array of textile products that have unique and high performance features and discusses evolving concepts that could lead to new uses of high-tech textiles. Includes an excellent overview of past, present, and future innovations in high-tech textile products.

Book News Annotation:

Two dozen papers from a symposium at the American Chemical Society national meeting, September 1989, in Miami Beach, explore the science and technology of high-tech fibrous materials in the areas of composites, biomedical devices, protective clothing, and geotextiles. Contributors from industry, academia, and government survey an array of new products that have unique, high performance features, discuss the evolving concepts that could lead to new uses of high-tech products, and present an overview of the field. Suitable for graduates and professionals in materials science, polymer chemistry, textiles; or for engineers working in aerospace, biomedicine, and other areas where such material finds application.
