Composites Manufacturing: Materials, Product and Process Engineeringby Sanjay K. Mazumdar
Synopses & Reviews
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.
