About this title

Synopsis:

Natural fiber-reinforced composites have the potential to replace synthetic composites, leading to less expensive, stronger and more environmentally-friendly materials. This book provides a detailed review on how a broad range of biofibers can be used as reinforcements in composites and assesses their overall performance. The book is divided into five major parts according to the origins of the different biofibers. Part I contains chapters on bast fibers, Part II; leaf fibers, Part III; seed fibers, Part IV; grass, reed and cane fibers, and finally Part V covers wood, cellulosic and other fibers including cellulosic nanofibers. Each chapter reviews a specific type of biofiber providing detailed information on the sources of each fiber, their cultivation, how to process and prepare them, and how to integrate them into composite materials. The chapters outline current and potential applications for each fiber and discuss their main strengths and weaknesses. * The book is divided into five major parts according to the origins of the different biofibers - bast, leaf, seed; grass, reed and cane fibers, and finally wood, cellulosic and other fibers including cellulosic nanofibers.* This book provides a detailed review on how a broad range of biofibers can be used as reinforcements in composites and assesses their overall performance* The chapters outline current and potential applications for each fiber and discuss their main strengths and weaknesses

Product Description:

Interest in natural fibres or biofibers as reinforcements in composites is growing as a way of making composite materials more sustainable. This comprehensive reference covers the use in composites of a broad range of bast fibres, leaf fibres, seed fibres, grass, reed and cane fibres and wood, cellulosic and other fibres. Chapters cover key fibre properties, processing and integration into composite matrices as well as assessment of composite performance.
