About this Research Topic
Recently, Liquid nitrogen-based composites have been fabricated via different novel fabrication techniques and with novel biodegradable materials to improve their mechanical performances. Fabricating low-temperature engineering products used in aircraft, space vehicles, and submarines to cryogenic machinery such as liquid nitrogen fuel lines, fuel distribution tubes, jet engines, and portions of the motor pumps is majorly due to their simplicity in production, low cost and good mechanical properties. This special issue encourages researchers and scientists to submit novel original research and review works related to development, processing, and characterization of biodegradable composites in low temperature engineering applications.
Among the topics addressed are:
Biodegradable materials at low temperatures
Polymer-based lightweight materials at low temperatures
Superconductors and their applications
Metal matrix composites under low temperatures
Low-temperature applications from aviation, space vehicles and jet engines etc.
Refrigeration and liquefaction technology
Mechanical and morphological behaviour of polymer materials under low temperatures
Low-temperature properties of alloys, composites and insulation materials
Novel cryogenic treatment techniques
Recent development of heat transfer techniques
Keywords: Metal matrix Composite, Polymer Composite, low temperatures, Biodegradable composites, Characterization
