<p><b>Explore the world of biocomposites with this one-stop resource edited by four international leaders in the field&nbsp;</b></p> <p><i>Bio-based&nbsp;Composites: Characterization, Properties, and Applications</i>&nbsp;delivers a comprehensive treatment of all known characterization methods, properties,&nbsp;and industry applications of&nbsp;bio-based&nbsp;composites materials.&nbsp;This unique, one-stop resource covers all major developments in the field from the last decade of research into this environmentally beneficial area.&nbsp;</p> <p>The internationally recognized editors have selected resources that represent advances in the mechanical, thermal, tribological, and water sorption properties of bio-based composites, and cover new areas of research in physico-chemical analysis, flame retardancy, failure mechanisms, lifecycle assessment, and modeling of bio-based composites.&nbsp;</p> <p>The low weight, low cost, excellent thermal recyclability, and biodegradability of bio-based composites make them ideal candidates to&nbsp;replace engineered plastic products derived from fossil fuel. This book provides its readers with the knowledge they&rsquo;ll require to understand a new class of materials increasingly being used in the automotive and packaging industries, aerospace, the military, and construction. It also includes:&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>An extended discussion of the environmental impact of bio-based composites using a lice cycle methodology&nbsp;</li> <li>A review of forecasts of natural fiber reinforced polymeric composites and its degradability concerns&nbsp;</li> <li>An analysis of the physical and mechanical properties of a bio-based composite with sisal powder&nbsp;</li> <li>A comprehensive treatment of the mechanical, thermal, tribological, and dielectric properties of bio-based composites&nbsp;</li> <li>A review of processing methods for the manufacture of bio-based composites&nbsp;</li> </ul> <p>Perfect for materials scientists in private industry, government laboratories, or engaged in academic research,&nbsp;<i>Bio-Based&nbsp;Composites</i>&nbsp;will also earn a place in the libraries of industrial and manufacturing engineers who seek a better understanding of the beneficial industrial applications of biocomposites in industries ranging from automobiles to packaging.&nbsp;</p>
