Springer | Special types of Materials | Feb. 14 2016 | ISBN-10: 9811004382 | 139 pages | pdf | 6.82 mb

Authors: Sachithanadam, Mahesh, Joshi, Sunil Chandrakant
Describes an inexpensive and easily implementable method to fabricate silica aerogel composites with superior thermal insulation and mechanical properties
Includes MATLAB codes that can be utilized to create interactive composition-property Descriptions
Presents detailed analysis of experimental results using theoretical models and numerical simulations

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.
