Elemental Graphene Analogues

The present monograph summarizes all of the work carried out on such monolayer materials up to the beginning of 2017, with attention being restricted to those, like graphene, being composed of a single element. Most of the work done so far on these ‘elemental graphene analogues’ has been theoretical, but the existing experimental data suggest that they may well become as useful as graphene.

Innovation in Smart Materials and Structural Health Monitoring for Composite Applications

Structural health monitoring (SHM) is an automated approach to determine any changes in the integrity of mechanical system. The SHM system gives information in real time and online. Hence it provides advantages in damage detection, damage localization, damage assessment, and life prediction as well compare to Non-destructive test (NDT) which is conducted offline.
