This book explores the improvement in thermal insulation properties of protein-based silica aerogel composites fabricated by a novel, inexpensive and feasible method. The resulting material exhibits polymeric foam behavior including high compressibility, super-hydrophobic qualities and excellent strain recovery in addition to low thermal conductivity.
The fabrication methodologies are explained in great detail and represented in flowcharts for easy reference and understanding. This monograph gives readers a new perspective on composite fabrication using methods other than the traditional ones and explores the endless ways of altering the composition to modify the properties of the silica aerogel composites.
Applications for this novel composite are diverse and range from those in the pharmaceutical and aerospace industries to the oil and gas industries. Sunil C.
Joshi received his Ph. Prior to that he worked as Scientist at National Aerospace laboratories, Bangalore, India, where he was part of the composite structures group from to after completing his M. Tech in Aeronautical Engineering with aircraft structures specialization. He has been a faculty in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, since , currently serving under Aerospace Engineering cluster with Materials and Structures as the focus area.
His research interests encompass aerogel composites, nano-engineered composites, microwave curing, manufacturing of thick composites, damages in braided and filament wound composites, and hygrothermal effects on composites. He looks into applications of composites for impact resistance, thermal insulation, and acoustic damping. He is an area editor for an Elsevier Journal and serves as reviewer for a number of international journals.
He has more than international journal and conference papers, 1 book, 1 applied patent and 5 book chapters to his publication list. He is currently pursuing PhD on aerogel composites under the supervision of Assoc. Current Journals. Archive Journals. All Journals. New Titles. Pick and Choose. Literature Updates.
