This bookfocuses on the fibers and textiles used in composite materials. It presentsboth existing technologies currently used in commercial applications and thelatest advanced research and developments. It also discusses the differentfiber forms and architectures, such as short fibers, unidirectional tows,directionally oriented structures or advanced 2D- and 3D-textile structures that are used in composite materials. In addition, it examinesvarious synthetic, natural and metallic fibers that are used to reinforcepolymeric, cementitious and metallic matrices, as well as fiber properties,special functionalities, manufacturing processes, and composite processing andproperties. Two entire chapters are dedicated to advanced nanofiber andnanotube reinforced composite materials. The book goes on to highlightdifferent surface treatments and finishes that are applied to improvefiber/matrix interfaces and other essential composite properties. 

Although a great deal of information about fibers and textilestructures used for composite applications is already available, this is theonly book currently available that discusses all types of fibers and structuresused to reinforce polymers, cement, metal or soil to improve their generalperformance and multi-functional behaviors. As such, it fills an important gapin the available literature and provides a valuable resource for a wide rangeof students and researchers from academia and industry.
