Literature Review: Composites problem for Materials

This “Ten Problems for Materials in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. research, 
  2. composites,
  3. metals,
  4. plastics,
  5. glass-ceramics,
  6. biomaterials,
  7. additive,
  8. nanomaterials,
  9. self-healing,
  10. informatics.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

2 Composites

THE PROBLEM — A wide range of material combinations can be used in composites, which allows for design flexibility. Due to global demand for sustainability, more advanced techniques have been recommended for improvement and cost reduction purposes.

CONCLUSIONS — The composite industry is still evolving, with much of the growth now focused around renewable energy. Fibre-hybrid composites are composed of two or more fibre types in a matrix, in that improving impact resistance, damping and functional properties. There does not appear to be any consistent and dependable advantage of using nano-sized cellulosic reinforcements when trying to achieve higher values of composite strength or modulus. Natural adhesive raw materials can significantly reduce the negative environmental impact of harmful formaldehyde and volatile organic compound emissions from wood-based panels. Aluminum and magnesium are the most studied light metals used as matrices in metal composites materials, principally for their low density and low melting temperature. Reduction in emissions for all infrastructural projects can be realized when there will be a swift scale-up in the use of novel cement alongside the integration of positive policies. Woven fabrics are used to manufacture composite materials with advanced properties because they are more deformable without defects. Polymers play an important role in either forming ceramics or blending with them to form efficient composites. produced jute-cotton and glass fibre reinforced textile composite sheet is cost-effective, eco-friendly, easy to produce, and long lasting. Prototyping underdeveloped smart material composites in collaborative projects aims at further developing novel materials.
