This work shows how the properties of cured epoxy resins are improved significantly by the addition of surface-modified silica nanoparticles. Addition of nanosilica typically linearly increases both the modulus and the fracture toughness, and compressive strength and fatigue performance can be improved significantly as well. Combining this modification with the classic toughening concept using reactive liquid rubbers or core-shell elastomers leads to hybrid systems, which are characterized by high toughness and stiffness, with further-improved fatigue performance. Laminates manufactured by using

Adhesives have been used for thousands of years, but until 100 years ago, the vast majority was from natural products such as bones, skins, fish, milk, and plants. Since about 1900, adhesives based on synthetic polymers have been introduced, and today, there are many industrial uses of adhesives and sealants. It is difficult to imagine a product—in the home, in industry, in transportation, or anywhere else for that matter—that does not use adhesives or sealants in some manner. The Handbook

With the rapid development of science and technology, the functionalization of structural materials, and the structurization of functional materials are attracting increasing attention in the scientific and engineering fields. The development of multi-functional materials and structures (MFMS), at the micro- and nano-scale levels, has grown rapidly due to the requirement of increasing safety margins for all infrastructure, biomedical and engineering elements. Multi-functional material systems are capable of performing multiple “primary” functions, simultaneously or sequentially in time, and are specially designed
