Nano Materials Book Excerpt:

Nanotechnology is widely regarded as one of the twenty-first century’s key technologies, and its economic importance is sharply on the rise. In architecture and the construction industry it has potentials that are already usable today, especially the coating of surfaces to lend them functional characteristics such as increased tensile strength, self-cleaning capacity, fire resistance, and others. Additives based on nanomaterials make common materials lighter, more permeable, and more resistant to wear. Nanomaterials are not only extremely useful for roofs and facades; they also expand design possibilities for interior and exterior rooms and spaces. Nano–insulating materials open up new possibilities for ecologically oriented architects. In this book, with a foreword by nobel prize winner Harold Kroto, architects, interior designers and designers will find an introduction to the scientific background specifically tailored to their needs, a critical discussion of the advantages and limits of the technology, and above all a comprehensive presentation of sixteen characteristics and functions of nanomaterials that are specially relevant for building and design, illustrated by numerous international project examples. Dipl.-Ing. interior designer BDIA Sylvia Leydecker is a practicing interior designer with her own firm in Cologne, 100% Interior. She represents the BDIA (Bund Deutscher Innenarchitekten, or Union of German Interior Architects/Designers) on the Architektenkammer Nordrhein-Westfalen (Chamber of Architects of North Rhine-Westphalia), serves as an instructor for a number of Architektenkammer academies, and is a member of the Kompetenzzentrum Nanotechnologie CC-NanoChem (Competence Center for Chemical Nanotechnology, or CC-NanoChem) and the Institute of Nanotechnology, or IoN, in Scotland. Numerous lectures and journal publications on the subject of nanotechnology in architecture, interior design, and design.

Foundations of Nanotechnology Three Volume Set Book Excerpt:

Nanoscale science, engineering, and technology—commonly referred to collectively as nanotechnology—is believed by many to offer extraordinary economic and societal benefits. Nanotechnology is generally defined as the ability to create and use materials, devices, and systems with unique properties at the scale of approximately 1 to 100 nm. Nanotechnology offers society the promise of major benefits, but also raises questions of potential adverse effects. The first volume covers pore size in carbon-based nano-adsorbents, resulting in materials that exhibit unique sorptive properties with a general view of the recent activities on the study of pore structure control. The collection of topics in volume 2 reflects the diversity of recent advances in nanoelements formation and interactions in nanosystems with a broad perspective that will be useful for scientists and engineers as the use of nanotechnology in the consumer and industrial sectors is expected to increase significantly in the future. And the third volume discusses important issues and trends related to research strategy in mechanics of carbon nanotubes.

Materials and Sustainable Development Book Excerpt:

Materials and Sustainable Development, Second Edition, written by noted materials selection authority Mike Ashby, provides a structure and framework for analyzing sustainable development and the role of materials in it. The book's aim is to introduce ways of exploring sustainable development to readers in a way that avoids simplistic interpretations and approaches complexity in a systematic way. There is no completely 'right' answer to questions of sustainable development, instead, there is a thoughtful, well-researched response that recognizes concerns of stakeholders, conflicting priorities, and the economic, legal and social aspects of the technology and its environmental legacy. The intent of the book is not to offer solutions to sustainability challenges but rather to improve the quality of discussion and enable informed, balanced debate. This updated edition has been updated to reflect new insights, regulatory trends and other developments that have occurred since publication of the previous edition. Describes sustainable development in increasingly detailed progression, from a broad overview to specific tools and methods Includes updated chapter length case studies on topics such as biopolymers, electric cars, bamboo, and lighting that vividly illustrate the sustainable development process from a materials perspective Covers business and economic aspects in chapters on corporate sustainability and the "circular materials economy"
