Composite Materials: a vision for the future

This book presents recent developments and state-of-the-art achievements in the science and technology of composites. It identifies and discusses key and emerging issues for future progress in the multidisciplinary field of composites.

Leading experts and promising innovators from research institutions and academia brought together to highlight unresolved issues and identify opportunities for long-term research needs, which will provide the reader with a vision for the future in various fields of application of composite materials.

A few of the many future directions highlighted in the book are increasingly multifunctional properties; complex, hybrid and nanoreinforced materials; and tailoring in multiple dimensions and directions. The wider areas covered include, but are not limited to, the following:

-biomedical engineering,

-civil engineering,

-aerospace engineering,

-automotive engineering, and

-naval engineering.

On basalt materials application as protective means for weapons, military and special equipment

Based on the tests, basalt woven materials show similar results to aramid and hybrid ones but the monolayer costs 9-10 times less compared to the aramid also basalt fabric offers better fire and thermal resistance. Calculations and experimental data lead to the conclusion that basalt materials application for the protection of ground, naval and air equipment is promising.
