Research and Markets: Advances in Military Textiles and Personal Equipment
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pp2bwt/advances_in) has announced the addition of Woodhead Publishing Ltd's new book "Advances in military textiles and personal equipment" to their offering.
Advances in Military Textiles and Personal Equipment summarises key research on the design, manufacture and applications of military textiles.
Part one explores anthropometric methods, psychological, colour and camouflage issues related to the successful design of military textiles. Materials and design issues in military helmets, footwear and hand wear are also reviewed. Part two goes on to consider applications of particular types of military clothing and equipment, including optimisation of body armour design, high performance ballistic protection using polymer nanocomposite technology as well as advances in materials and modelling of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear protective clothing. Finally, Advances in military textiles and personal equipment looks specifically at designing load carriage and advanced hydration systems for military personnel.
