Book Description :

Thermoplastic Aromatic Polymer Composites: A Study of the Structure, Processing and Properties of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polyetheretherketone and Related Materials deals with the field of thermoplastic composite materials through a study of carbon fiber reinforced polyetheretherketone. The book is composed of twelve chapters. The first four chapters are an introduction and basic learning of thermoplastic composite materials. These chapters include discussions on the components of thermoplastics, product forms, and the microstructure of aromatic polymer composites. The processing and manufacturing technology, including the fundamental operations, control, and the wide implications of manufacturing the composite material, are analyzed. The service performance structure of three interactions, namely, material, design, and processing, are illustrated. The strength of thermoplastic composites is then considered through an analysis of both shear and extensions with elastic modulus, but in the case of material strength, the differences between tension and compression properties should be taken into account. The book also notes that the durability, temperature sensitivity, and environmental resistance should likewise be regarded for a structural composite to have practical value and satisfactory performance. Lastly, the text explains that the numerous applications of thermoplastic structural composites, such as in medicine, aviation, marine and space technology, automotive, and industrial machinery, are all important and a rigorous evaluation is therefore necessary. The book finally suggests that the research into the future developments in the thermoplastic structural composites and the trend toward new design strategies and processing technology are important in optimizing the composite's great potential. Industrial researchers in the field of chemistry and polymer composites, students, and academicians interested in the design and application of polymer composites will find this book relevant.

Book Description :

Thermoplastics composites are widely used nowadays. Their matrices are characterised by their aptitude to be repeatedly melted by heating and solidified by cooling, and this in a reversible way. The reinforcement add rigidity and strength to the matrix, thus making a material combining the properties of both constituents. Thermoplastic composites have become an area of increased interest due to their relatively low cost, wide range of mechanical properties, toughness, problem free storage, resistance to chemical attack, ease of processability, and above all their better recyclability. This book reviews emerging technologies, uses and prospects of thermoplastic composites. Chapter One summarises the preparation, structure-property relationships and potential applications of thermoplastic polyurethane nanocomposites. Chapter Two discusses innovative thermoplastic PET powder coating in the telecommunications field. Chapter Three focuses on mechanical recycling of thermoplastic composites. Chapter Four provides a suggestion for standardising a traceable process for the determination of the mechanical properties of concrete containing thermoplastic polymers as aggregates.

Book Description :

Fiber composites, like metals, exhibit a form of degradation in service described as fatigue. Engineers must understand composite fatigue because it is a causative agent of design and structural failures. Engineers need to increase their knowledge of the mechanisms which result in degradation in order to predict the life of a composite under specified conditions and produce composites with greater durability. This book provides an extensive account of contemporary research on fatigue from a selection of internationally recognized researchers. Part one introduces the concept, delivering a historical review of the fatigue behavior of fiber-reinforced plastics and illustrating fatigue test methods and fatigue under multiaxial stress systems. The second part reviews current research on micromechanical aspects, emphasizing long-term behavior, interface performance, delamination, and damage accumulation. The next two sections cover the analysis and testing of fatigue behavior and detail physical, micromechanical, computational, statistical, and life-prediction models for constant and variable stress. The final parts offer an overview of the wide range of composite fatigue-related problems experienced by engineers in aerospace, marine, and structural engineering.

Book Description :

Composites have become a necessity in many applications that require specific properties not attainable with pure polymers. Polymer composites with high strength are often processed with glass fibers or carbon fibers. However, the choice of reinforcement usually renders the composite inconvenient for recycling either due to the choice of matrix material such as thermosetting epoxy or simply the difficulty of separating thermoplastic matrices from their respective reinforcement material. Therefore, a more sustainable solution through recyclable thermoplastic composites is needed. This thesis explores the mechanical properties of thermoplastics reinforced by other thermoplastics with varying degrees of miscibility. Polar polymers such as polycarbonate and polyethylene terephthalate were expected to have the advantage of polar interaction forces that may aid in miscibility. Self-reinforced polyethylene terephthalate (PET) had been explored in literature to yield better mechanical properties than molded samples of low-melt polyesters. It was observed from experiments in this thesis that using nonwoven PET for self-reinforcement marginally enhances the tensile properties of PET composites. However, the commodity nonwoven reinforcement used is not the optimum choice for reinforcement in composites since the felts were not especially made for this purpose.Polycarbonate (PC) and polylactic acid thermoplastic resins have shown melt-impregnation through nonwoven polyethylene terephthalate fiber, yet their mechanical properties declined. As such, an immiscible or partially miscible polymer matrix is bound to have lower interfacial adhesion at the matrix-fiber interface. Using polycarbonate as the matrix, an embrittlement effect was induced in the composite. Furthermore, this thesis also expands on composites by way of polymer-polymer composite layered fused filament fabrication. As opposed to the former where processing occurred below the reinforcements melting temperature, extrusion deposition involves a mutual-melt interface. Dual-extruded filaments of varying miscibility were investigated due to the limited interlayer bonding single filament extrusion can attain. Interlayer adhesion is influenced by the rapidly changing temperature history profile of extrusion-based additive manufacturing where road-to-road welding does not reach virgin strength of the deposited polymer. Glycol-modified polyethylene terephthalate (PETG) was dual-extruded with polycarbonate to assess their composites mechanical property against pure PETG. Although good adhesion between PC and PETG is achievable, the compositeivmechanical strength did not improve above the performance of either of its constituents. PC and PETG are only partially miscible thus interaction forces between their composite are not as strong as forces of adhesion in the pure single-extruded polymers. Moreover, partial miscibility also implicates that diffusion would not occur over all molecular weights. It follows that tensile results of dual-extruded PC-PETG composites have lower strength than both PC and PETG in single extrusion processing. On the other hand, dual 3D printing of completely immiscible polymers such as polylactic acid (PLA) with glycol-modified polyethylene terephthalate will fail catastrophically in tensile testing due to depleted interfacial strength and inefficient stress transfer. Flexural testing clearly points towards multiple interfacial failures of dual extruded PLA-PETG composites. Conversely, single-extruded samples of PLA only had a singular brittle failure while PETG had no break in bending. Therefore, immiscibility has detrimental effects on interfacial strength of additively manufactured dual-extruded composites.

Book Description :

• One of very few books available to cover this subject area. • A practical book with a wealth of detail. This book covers the major manufacturing processes for polymer matrix composites with an emphasis on continuous fibre-reinforced composites. It covers the major fabrication processes in detail. Very few books cover the details of fabrication and assembly processes for composites. This book is intended for the engineer who wants to learn more about composite processing: any one with some experience in composites should be able to read it. The author, who has 34 years experience in the aerospace industry, has intentionally left out mathematical models for processes so the book will be readable by the general engineer. It differs from other books on composites manufacturing in focussing almost solely on manufacturing processes, while not attempting to cover materials, test methods, mechanical properties and other areas of composites.
