Composite materials now occupy an established position in the aerospace industry. They are also used for many components in the automotive industry and civil infrastructures now have their reinforcements made of composite materials. There is a large range of manufacturing processes for the production of low-cost composites. There is a need by engineers working in composites for a practical source of reference for the design and application of composites. This book fills that need.

In the educational sector, composite materials now are taught at many universities around the world. Usually the topic covered is laminate theory. Composites Design courses also exist in a few universities and institutes. The demand from students and also practitioners of composites for knowledge and training in design of composites is increasing. However a good design book has not been available. The content of these design courses concentrates mostly on analysis while applications still remain at the specimen level.

This book, initially written by Daniel Gay in French, has been distributed widely in France and in French speaking countries. The authors are of the opinion that having the book in the English language would facilitate the training and dissemination of knowledge to the regions where composites are used the most. The book has been translated to English with modifications and updates. The book consists of four main parts, with increasing levels of complexity. Each part can be studied independently from the other parts.

This part can be used by itself to form a part of a course on advanced materials and associated designs. This consists of discussion on elastic anisotropic properties, the directional dependence of different properties, and mechanical properties of thin laminates.

This part can be used by itself to teach students and engineers on the mechanics of composite materials. The Hill-Tsai failure criterion, bending of composite beams, torsion of composite beams, and bending of thick composite plates. This part requires knowledge of strength of materials. Information presented here is more theoretical than in preceding parts. Its main objective is to contribute to a better interpretation of the behavior of composite components.

There are three levels of examples. Level 1 deals with the determination of mechanical properties of composite structures in different forms such as plates, tubes, or composite components made using different processes such as hand-lay-up or filament winding.

Level 2 deals with thermoelastic properties of different laminates. Failure analysis is also carried out. Level 3 deals with bonding of cylinders made of composites, buckling of composite sandwich beams, flexural shear in sandwich beams, vibrations of composite This volume can be used to teach students at the first year graduate level as well as the final year undergraduate level.

It is also useful for practical engineers who want to learn, on the job, the guidelines for the use of composites in their applications. The authors hope that this volume can make significant contribution to the training of future engineers who utilize composites.

This has fundamental influence on the mechanical properties of the composite material. FibersFibers consist of thousands of filaments, each filament having a diameter of between 5 and 15 micrometers, allowing them to be producible using textile machines; 2 for example, in the case of glass fiber, one can obtain two semiproducts as shown in Figure 1.

Their minimum radius of curvature is 4 mm. Then, except for particular cases, weaving is not possible. One can immediately notice the industrial importance of fiber glass produced in large quantities. Carbon and Kevlar fibers are reserved for high performance components. Then only the hexagonal carbon chains, as shown in Figure 1. Black and bright filaments are obtained. High modulus of elasticity is obtained by drawing at high temperature.

The boron fibers obtained have a diameter of about m m the growth speed is about 1 micron per second. The principal physical-mechanical properties of the fibers are indicated in Table 1. Note the very significant disparity of the prices per unit weight. After this phase, it would be impossible to modify the material, as in the way one would like to modify the structure of a metal alloy using heat treatment, for example. In the case of polymer matrix composites, this has to be polymerized, for example, polyester resin.

During the solidification process, it passes from the liquid state to the solid state by copolymerization with a monomer that is mixed with the resin. The phenomenon leads to hardening. This can be done using either a chemical accelerator or heat. The following pages will describe the principal processes for the formation of composite parts. Forming by molding processes varies depending on the nature of the part, the number of parts, and the cost.

The mold material can be made of metal, polymer, wood, or plaster. Contact MoldingContact molding see Figure 2. The layers of fibers impregnated with resin and accelerator are placed on the mold. Compaction is done using a roller to squeeze out the air pockets.

The duration for resin setting varies, depending on the amount of accelerator, from a few minutes to a few hours. One can also obtain parts of large dimensions at the rate of about 2 to 4 parts per day per mold. Compression MoldingWith compression molding see Figure 2. The whole assembly is placed in a press that can apply a pressure of 1 to 2 bars.

The polymerization takes place either at ambient temperature or higher. The process is good for average volume production: one can obtain several dozen parts a day up to with heating.

This has application for automotive and aerospace parts. Molding with VacuumThis process of molding with vacuum is still called depression molding or bag molding. As in the case of contact molding described previously, one uses an open mold on top of which the impregnated reinforcements are placed.

In the case of sandwich materials, the cores are also used see Chapter 4. One sheet of soft plastic is used for sealing this is adhesively bonded to the perimeter of the mold.

Vacuum is applied under the piece of plastic see Figure 2. The piece is then compacted due to the action of atmospheric pressure, and the air bubbles are eliminated. Porous fabrics absorb excess resin. This process has applications for aircraft structures, with the rate of a few parts per day 2 to 4. Resin Injection MoldingWith resin injection molding see Figure 2. The resin polyester or phenolic is injected.

The mold pressure is low. This process can produce up to 30 pieces per day. The investment is less costly and has application in automobile bodies. Molding by Injection of PremixedThe process of molding by injection of premixed allows automation of the fabrication cycle rate of production up to pieces per day.

The schematic of the process is shown in Figure 2. Molding by Foam InjectionMolding by foam injection see Figure 2. These pieces remain stable over time, with good surface conditions, and have satisfactory mechanical and thermal properties. Molding of Components of RevolutionThe process of centrifugal molding see Figure 2.

It allows homogeneous distribution of resin with good surface conditions, including the internal surface of the tube. The length of the tube depends on the length of the mold. Rate of production varies with the diameter and length of the tubes up to kg of composite per day. The process of filament winding see Figure 2. The rate of production can be up to kg of composite per day. These can be used to make missile tubes, torpillas, containers, or tubes for transporting petroleum.

For pieces which must revolve around their midpoint, winding can be done on a mandrel. This can then be removed and cured in an autoclave see Figure 2. This process is used to fabricate components of high internal pressure, such as reservoirs and propulsion nozzles.

Profile FormingThe piece shown in Figure 2. This process makes possible the fabrication of continuous open or closed profiles. The fiber content is important for high mechanical properties.

Фонтейн, видимо, размышлял. Сьюзан попробовала что-то сказать, но Джабба ее перебил: - Чего вы ждете, директор. Позвоните Танкадо. Скажите, что вы согласны на его условия. Нам нужен этот шифр-убийца, или все здесь провалится сквозь землю.

Хейл достаточно понимал язык программирования Лимбо, чтобы знать, что он очень похож на языки Си и Паскаль, которые были его стихией. Убедившись еще раз, что Сьюзан и Стратмор продолжают разговаривать, Хейл начал импровизировать. Введя несколько модифицированных команд на языке Паскаль, он нажал команду ВОЗВРАТ.
