Book Excerpt : Recent advancements in the field of nuclear science and technology have increased the demand for new innovative advanced materials for radiation shielding applications. For example, exposure to neutron radiation can cause severe damage to human beings. Micro and Nanostructured Composite Materials for Neutron Shielding Applications focuses on recent developments and future possibilities for neutron shielding materials. Emphasis is placed on the correlation between the morphology, shielding mechanisms and other desired properties such as the mechanical, and thermal properties of the materials. The effect, of neutron absorbing fillers, including their size on the final properties is also examined in detail. Recent advancements in preparation, characterisation and simulation techniques are also covered. Written by specialists in their respective fields, the book will help professionals and students to understand the fundamentals of neutron shielding, as well as the properties of micro and nano polymer-based composites, concrete materials, alloy materials and metal-ceramic composites.
