Focusing on all aspects of composites, Fundamentals of Composites Manufacturing: Materials, Methods, and Applications covers the composition, structure, and physical properties of composites. You’ll study the manufacturing methods of fiber-reinforced plastics and post-fabrication techniques, as well as the latest composites applications. Topics include: thermosets, thermoplastics, non-resinous matrices, reinforcements, fiber types, hybrids, physical properties of composites, design principles, environmental effects on composites, manufacturing and inspection techniques, and more. Instructor’s Guide is also available and has a complete answer key.
