Aerogel materials for insulation in buildings

Abstract:

Aerogel materials have recently received much attention since they give many exciting applications in a wide range of areas. This chapter highlights the processing of these materials, the resulting physicochemical properties and their applications. Thus, fundamental understandings in the techniques for processing of aerogel materials including conventional drying, supercritical drying, freeze-drying, ambient-pressure drying with regards to material density and void size distribution, thermal ...
