Abstract

Recently, multi-scale composites have been developed by combining reinforcements from different length scales, in order to overcome the drawbacks of conventional composites as well to enhance their performances. Most of the research works on multi-scale composites have been performed using carbon based nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and nano fibres (CNFs). Looking at the outstanding characteristics of carbon based multi-scale composites, multi-scale composites based on plant based fibres and nano materials are also gaining research attention. This paper provides a brief overview of recent research studies on multi-scale composites, particularly focusing on plant based fibres and nanomaterials.
