Thermodynamics of the formation of mesostructures in nanodispersed composite materials
Two models of the formation of mesostructures in nanodispersed composite materials are considered. According to the first model, a mesoelement is formed of coarsely dispersed compositions as an inclusion in a nanodispersed composite body. The second model considers a mesoelement being formed from nanoparticles as an inclusion in the volume of a coarsely dispersed composite body. Depending on the class of composite materials used to produce mesoelements and a composite body, their composition and structure are defined by the liquid phase migration (or absence of the migration) as well as diffusion flows of the components.
