Manufacturing, Engineering and Materials Processing #59: Process Modeling in Composites Manufacturing, Second Editionby Suresh G. Advani
Synopses & Reviews
There is a wealth of literature on modeling and simulation of polymer composite manufacturing processes. However, existing books neglect to provide a systematic explanation of how to formulate and apply science-based models in polymer composite manufacturing processes. Process Modeling in Composites Manufacturing, Second Edition provides tangible methods to optimize this process and it remains a proven, powerful introduction to the basic principles of fluid mechanics and heat transfer.
Includes tools to develop an experience base to aid in modeling a composite manufacturing process
Building on past developments, this new book updates the previous edition 's coverage of process physics and the state of modeling in the field. Exploring research derived from experience, intuition, and trial and error, the authors illustrate a state-of-the-art understanding of mass, momentum, and energy transfer during composites processing. They introduce computer-based solutions using MATLAB code and flow simulation-based analysis, which complement closed-form solutions discussed in the book, to help readers understand the role of different material, geometric, and process parameters.
This self-contained primer provides an introduction to modeling of composite manufacturing processes for anyone working in material science and engineering, industrial, mechanical, and chemical engineering. It introduces a scientific basis for manufacturing, using solved example problems which employ calculations provided in the book. End-of-chapter questions and problems and fill in the blanks sections reinforce the content in order to develop the experience base of the manufacturing, materials, and design engineer or scientists, as well as seniors and first-year graduate students.
Book News Annotation:
This textbook explains how to formulate and use models of polymer composite manufacturing processes. It is intended for seniors and first-year undergraduate students in materials science and industrial, mechanical, and chemical engineering. With 200 pages more than the previous edition, this second edition reflects current techniques in process physics and modeling, and also introduces new computer-based solutions using MATLAB codes and flow simulation-based analysis. There is also new discussion of closed-form solutions. The book begins by introducing composite materials and manufacturing processes. The next three chapters provide modeling tools: transport equations for composite processing, constitute laws and their characterization, and model simplifications and solutions. The rest of the book demonstrates the application of these tools in manufacturing processes for three different types of materials. Learning features include chapter review quizzes and problems, as well as b&w photos and images. The book's appendices of MATLAB files and LIMS input files are also available for download. Advani directs the Center for Composite Materials at the University of Delaware. Sozer teaches mechanical engineering at Koc University, Turkey.

An introduction to modeling of composite manufacturing processes, this book covers the basic principles of fluid mechanics and heat transfer. The book includes example problems solved to facilitate the use of back-of-the-envelope calculations, introducing a scientific basis to manufacturing. The end of each chapter has questions and problems that reinforce the content and fill in the blanks sections that will develop the experience base of the manufacturing, materials, and design engineer or scientist. In this new edition, the computer based solutions were obtained using MATLAB code and also flow simulation based analysis.
