Introduction to Nanocomposite Materials
Properties, Processing ,Characterization
by Thomas E. Twardowski

Introduction to Nanocomposite Materials presents the basics of nanocomposite materials in the context of composite materials in general.

The goal of Introduction to Nanocomposite Materials is to help the reader understand nanocomposites in an integrated way, informed by the foundational concepts of materials science.

Numerous formulas illustrate nanocomposite performance, processing, and evaluation. Introduction to Nanocomposite Materials
