About the book

Current scientific and technological areas are regularly of an interdisciplinary nature, and the area of composite materials science is no exception. The book aims to cover the current trends and new group of composite materials such as fiber reinforced polymer, metal and ceramic based composites. The applied and basic researches related to this area should be explained clearly to understand the need of the concept of composite materials in industrial applications. The different process and surface modifications can be discussed for multi-oriented systems and mechanisms. Contributions covering the modern concept of preparation of composite materials, engineering tribology are welcome, to minimize energy consumption. Other related applied and fundamental researches and patents can be discussed. The purpose of this book is to link together fabrication, characterization, structure and properties, so as to clarify which characteristics provide the necessary information to attain the correct composite materials.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
