Composites (08f)

#80 - Composite II (08F02)
This session invites contributions in all areas of composites materials and nanocomposites. New developments concerning the processing, structure, and properties of advanced composites are included with respect to theoretical, modeling, and/or experimental. Materials of interest include polymeric composites, carbon-carbon composites, environment-friendly composites, smart composites, biologically compatible composites, and nanocomposites. Novel applications and industrial case studies are promoted.
