Advanced Structural and Functional Materials for Protection
Selected, Peer Reviewed Papers From the Symposium T on Advanced Structural and Functional Materials for Protection, International Conference on Materials for Advanced Technologies (ICMAT2011), International Convention & Exhibition Centre, June 26-July 1, 2011, SingaporeeBook - 2012
This collection of 37 papers describes materials for protecting civilians and soldiers against vehicle collision, blast-damage, fragmentation and unconventional attack. They also treat multi-functional materials for enhancing civilian and soldier performance under extreme conditions. The detailed topics include the atomic-layer deposition of thin inorganic coatings into renewable packaging materials, the development of woven enhanced silk fabric for ballistic protection, novel piezo-electric tactile sensor materials having improved properties, enhancement of the char resistance of expandable g.
