Description
ADVANCES IN NANOCOMPOSITES
The intent of this course is to address the theory and applications of bio-inspired and nuclear materials at Nano scales. The course will provide an overview of nanomaterials, with specific applications to bio-inspired intelligent structures and nuclear materials and the relations to energy and fission reactor concepts under extreme temperature and radiation conditions; background on the types of composite materials used in nuclear reactors and their response to neutron irradiation will be presented, case studies in mechanochemical functions, chemical modification of nanocomposites, emerging applications for bio-inspired and nuclear-composite materials will also be presented.
