Composites Manufacturing – Sanjay K. Mazumdar – 1st Edition

More and more companies manufacture reinforced composite products. To meet the market need, researchers and industries are developing methods without a reference that thoroughly covers the guidelines. Composites : , Product, and Process Engineering fills this void. The author presents a fundamental classification of , 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.
