TY - CHAP A1 - Nikolaos Simos ED1 - John Cuppoletti Y1 - 2011-07-20 PY - 2011 T1 - Composite Materials under Extreme Radiation and Temperature Environments of the Next Generation Nuclear Reactors N2 - Composite materials, often shortened to composites, are engineered or naturally occurring materials made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties which remain separate and distinct at the macroscopic or microscopic scale within the finished structure. The aim of this book is to provide comprehensive reference and text on composite materials and structures. This book will cover aspects of design, production, manufacturing, exploitation and maintenance of composite materials. The scope of the book covers scientific, technological and practical concepts concerning research, development and realization of composites.
