Manufacturing and Processing of Natural Filler Based Polymer Composites by Jagadish; Sumit BhowmikThis book covers manufacturing and processing of various natural filler-based polymer composites using conventional and advanced machining processes. It presents various experimental case studies conducted by the authors on conventional and advanced machining processes of various natural filler (jute, hemp, banana stem and sisal)-based polymer composites materials. The authors report on the effects of machining processes on the machining properties, such as material removal rate, surface quality, geometric accuracy, process tine and environment while machining various materials.

Carbon Fibers: Manufacturing, Application, Processing. by Hauke Lengsfeld; Hendrik Mainka; Volker AltstädtThis useful guide provides a practical approach to making carbon fibers and their composites. The book begins with a brief history of the development of carbon fiber, defining the terminology for all forms of solid carbon and the properties for elemental carbon and its allotropic forms.Various precursors for carbon fibers, corresponding surface treatments and sizes for various types of carbon fiber available on the world market are presented. The book gives an excellent overview of the chemical and physical properties of carbon fibers and their composites. Common test and analysis methods for verifying these properties are also presented.In several chapters, typical processing processes for carbon fibers with dry and also impregnated semi-finished products in application areas such as aerospace, wind industry and automotive up to the construction industry are presented. The advantages and disadvantages of various manufacturing processes are shown based on application examples.Considerations regarding carbon fiber recycling and sustainability (environmental footprint) as well as new developments in the field of carbon fiber production should support the reader in the selection and understanding of material, process and design in order to be able to implement them successfully.

Advances in Composites Manufacturing and Process Design by Philippe Boisse (Editor)The manufacturing processes of composite materials are numerous and often complex. Continuous research into the subject area has made it hugely relevant with new advances enriching our understanding and helping us overcome design and manufacturing challenges. Advances in Composites Manufacturing and Process Design provides comprehensive coverage of all processing techniques in the field with a strong emphasis on recent advances, modeling and simulation of the design process. Part One reviews the advances in composite manufacturing processes and includes detailed coverage of braiding, knitting, weaving, fibre placement, draping, machining and drilling, and 3D composite processes. There are also highly informative chapters on thermoplastic and ceramic composite manufacturing processes, and repairing composites. The mechanical behaviour of reinforcements and the numerical simulation of composite manufacturing processes are examined in Part Two. Chapters examine the properties and behaviour of textile reinforcements and resins. The final chapters of the book investigate finite element analysis of composite forming, numerical simulation of flow processes, pultrusion processes and modeling of chemical vapour infiltration processes. Outlines the advances in the different methods of composite manufacturing processes Provides extensive information on the thermo-mechanical behavior of reinforcements and composite prepregs Reviews numerical simulations of forming and flow processes, as well as pultrusion processes and modeling chemical vapor infiltration
Sustainable Manufacturing and Remanufacturing Management by Weidong Li (Editor); Sheng Wang (Editor)This book reports on the latest research and applications in the fields of sustainable manufacturing and remanufacturing, as well as process planning and optimization technologies. It introduces innovative algorithms, methodologies, industrial case studies and applications. It focuses on two topics: sustainable manufacturing for machining technologies and remanufacturing of waste electronic equipment, and various methods are covered for each one, including macro process planning, dynamic scheduling, selective disassembly planning and cloud-based disassembly planning. The experimental analysis provided for every method explains the benefits, as well as how they are sustainable for various real-world applications. Further, a theoretical analysis and algorithm design is presented for each, accompanied by the contributors' relevant research, including: * step-by-step guides; * application scenarios; * relevant literature surveys; * implementation details and case studies; and * critical reviews on the relevant technologies. This book is a valuable resource for researchers in sustainable manufacturing, remanufacturing and product lifecycle management communities, as well as practicing engineers and decision-makers in industry and all those interested in sustainable product development. It is also useful reading material for postgraduates and academics wanting to conduct relevant research, and a reference resource for manufacturing engineers developing innovative tools and methodologies.
