Sustainable Biopolymer Composites: Biocompatibility, Self-healing, Modeling, Repair and Recyclability focuses on sustainable polymer composites also referred to as bio- composites. Vital aspects such as biodegradability, biocompatibility, repair and recyclability are discussed in detail. In addition, complexities like rapid and scalable processing, onsite repair, and minimal environmental effects are also covered along with the appropriateness of advanced polymer composites for structural applications in automotive, aviation and marine industries. This book will be an indispensable resource for scientists, engineers, physicists and chemists who are interested in the preparation, applications and repair analysis of bio-based composites and nano-composites for different types of applications.The composites repair process is extremely complex, hence it is essential to have a comprehensive understanding of damage mechanisms to apply the most suitable repair technique. Damage assessment using onsite inspection, e.g., NDT, THz techniques and the automated repair process for reliability and repeatability, are vital parameters when executing bonded composite repair. Furthermore, overall integrity and structural health monitoring of composites repair is also necessary.Key FeaturesFeatures detailed information on damage detection, failure analysis and repair of advanced bio-polymer compositesEmphasizes biocompatibility, degradation and recyclability of these materialsFeatures key chapters on molecular dynamics, multi-scale modeling and self-healingPresents a roadmap for materials selection, processing and industrial utilization for a broad range of applicationsReadershipGraduate students, Professors, Researchers, Industrials. Students and researchers from materials science, polymer science, chemistry and engineering. Academics will be the biggest audience for this book
