Machine-Augmented Composites Materials (MACterials) are composites that contain many, small, embedded simple machines. Due to the presence of these embedded machines, these composites have properties that cannot be obtained by other means.

The goals of this task developing the analytical tools and manufacturing methods for using machine-augmented composite materials in infrastructure applications have been successfully achieved.

The need to use low-cost materials in many infrastructure applications precludes the use of expensive flame-retardant polymers or fire-protective coatings.

Therefore, an appreciation by civil engineers of the fire properties of polymer composites is important in the safe design and durability assessment of structures. Important reference book on composites materials manufacturing technologies from Vietnamese, as well Japanese and Canadian researchers; Edited by three internationally regarded materials science professors, this book is an important expansion of a series presenting composites research from Canada and Japan.
