Nano-fibers offer many advantages over other nano-reinforcements, due to their continuity and dual nano-macro roles. Nano-fiber reinforced composites are mainly used in construction and biomedical applications, and can be achieved through two ways: (i) by using nano-fibers to reinforce nanocomposite, and (ii) by incorporation of nanomaterials into fiber-reinforced composites. Fiber-reinforced Nanocomposites: Fundamentals and Applications explores the fundamental concepts and emerging applications of fiber-reinforced nanocomposites in the automobile, aerospace, transportation, construction, sporting goods, optics, electronics, acoustics and environmental sector. The book also provides a detailed overview of the properties of fiber-reinforced nanocomposites. These are achieved by embedding the high-strength fibers in matrices. Due to the mismatch in structure, density, strain, and thermal expansion coefficients, between matrix and fibers, their thermo-mechanical properties thus strongly depend not only on the preparative methods, but also on the interaction between reinforcing phase and matrix phase. Recently, multiscale fiber-reinforced nanocomposites have been developed by using two different reinforcements: fibres at microscale and nanofillers. In this way, the stiffness, strength and thermal properties of composite can be significantly improved. This book offers a concise overview of these advances, and how they are leading to the creation of stronger, more durable, classes of nanocomposite material.This book traces how a new school, physically designed as a modern learning environment, has come into being in New Zealand. A key feature is how it designs its curriculum for future citizens. The book explores how flexible curriculum and assessment options support the provision of a well-balanced, coherent and future-oriented learning programme. It also illustrates how the school is implementing its vision and copes with being different from other schools which understand and embody the New Zealand Curriculum as well as the NCEA qualifications system in more traditional terms. School leaders', teachers' and foundation students' thinking and perspectives about what it's like to become a new school are highlighted and shed light on what is possible within an evolving education system.
