This work fills a gap in the literature by emphasizing the static and dynamic behaviors of porous nanocomposite structures in the framework of continued mechanics-based approaches. It investigates matrices strengthened via various nanofillers such as carbon nanotubes, graphene platelets and graphene oxide powders. Equivalent properties of nanocomposites are obtained via homogenization techniques based on micromechanics approaches.
Analyses are performed using an energy-based approach incorporated with the strain-displacement relations of shear deformable beam, plate or shell theorems. Also, the effects of using various nanofillers are surveyed to show which one is the best alternative to realize the goal of improving the nanocomposites’ stiffness. As one of the crucial phenomena affecting performance of nanocomposites, the effects of porosity are investigated, along with mechanical characteristics of nanocomposites. Moreover, both numerical and analytical solution methods are applied to solve problems.
Aimed at researchers, academics, and professionals working across mechanical, materials, and other areas of engineering, this work ensures that readers are equipped to fully understand the mechanical characteristics of nanocomposite structures so that they can design, develop, and apply these materials effectively.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
