Multifunctional Composites

Multifunctional composites comprise all composites which supply a couple of estate, or performance, no matter if particularly designed or converted from latest designs. even supposing conventional polymer matrix composites have many helpful houses together with stiffness, energy, and sturdiness, those usually contain tradeoffs resembling terrible acoustic damping and coffee electric conductivity.

Aluminum oxide has several polymorphs, among which α-Al2O3 (with space group R 3 c) is the most thermodynamically stable form. 8 metastable phases can be classified as follows: (1) fcc packing cubic (γ, η), monoclinic (θ), and tetragonal or orthorhombic (δ); (2) hexagonal closed packing (hcp) rhombohedral (α), orthorhombic (κ), and hexagonal (χ). 3 Zirconium oxide (ZrO2, also known as zirconia) has monoclinic crystal structure at room temperature, which transforms to tetragonal and cubic (Fig. 7 However, retaining the high-temperature tetragonal phase will allow absorption of energy that can restrict crack growth.

Additionally, the electrons tend to have minimum energy when they are located between the protons, and they tend to pull the two protons nearer. However, the repulsive force between the protons balances the attractive force contributed by electron–proton attraction similar to that of ionic nuclei separation in an ionic bond (Fig. 3). Covalent bonding is highly prevalent in organic compounds since the four valence electrons in carbon orient themselves in a tetrahedron (diamond structure) via sp3 hybridization.
