Biomimetics in Materials Science: Self-Healing, by Michael Nosonovsky,Pradeep K. Rohatgi

By Michael Nosonovsky,Pradeep K. Rohatgi

Biomimetics in fabrics Science presents a complete theoretical and sensible evaluate of biomimetic fabrics with self-healing, self-lubricating and self-cleaning houses. those 3 issues are heavily comparable and represent speedily constructing parts of analysis. the sector of self-healing fabrics calls for a brand new conceptual realizing of this biomimetic expertise, that is not like conventional  engineering methods similar to put on and fatigue.  Biomimetics in fabrics Science is the 1st monograph to be dedicated to those fabrics. a brand new theoretical framework for those approaches is gifted in line with the concept that of multi-scale constitution of entropy and non-equilibrium thermodynamics, including a close overview of the on hand expertise. The latter contains experimental, modeling, and simulation effects acquired on self-healing/lubricating/cleaning fabrics considering that their emergence some time past decade.
