Features

  • Covers material selection guidelines, product manufacturability, product development process, cost estimating techniques, and more
  • Helps you understand where a process fits within the overall scheme and which is appropriate for a particular component
  • Presents the latest information and guidelines for making all types of products using composite materials
  • Includes the aerospace, automotive, marine, and sporting goods industries
  • Summary

    More and more companies manufacture reinforced composite products. To meet the market need, researchers and industries are developing manufacturing methods without a reference that thoroughly covers the manufacturing guidelines. Composites Manufacturing: Materials, Product, and Process Engineering fills this void. The author presents a fundamental classification of processes, helping you understand where a process fits within the overall scheme and which process is best suited for a particular component. You will understand:
  • Types of raw materials available for the fabrication of composite products
  • Methods of selecting right material for an application
  • Six important phases of a product development process
  • Design for manufacturing (DFM) approach for integrating benefits and capabilities of the manufacturing process into design of the product so that the best product can be produced in a shortest possible time and with limited resources
  • Detailed description of composites manufacturing processes with some case studies on actual part making such as boat hulls, bathtubs, fishing rods and more
  • Process models and process selection criteria
  • Design and manufacturing guidelines for making cost-competitive composite products
  • Procedures for writing manufacturing instructions and bill of materials
  • Joining and machining techniques for composite materials
  • Cost-estimating techniques and methods of comparing technologies/manufacturing processes based on cost
  • Recycling approach to deal with post-market composite products
    To stay ahead in this quickly changing field, you need information you can trust. You need Composites Manufacturing: Materials, Product, and Process Engineering.
