Fibreglass design/compositedesign procedure & manuel

Dear engineers
I am interested in having details about the design aspects for the manufacture of FRP components. I request you to let me know what are the design data hand books available for the design and development of the above components.

Thanking you

yours faithfully

RE: Fibreglass design/compositedesign procedure & manuel

I know of several books for the design and fabrication of composite parts.  SOme are tailored towards deisgn and some are tailored towards production.  Each industry has their own standards and tips/tricks for parts.

Some of the books I have used:

Fiber-Reinforced Composites by Mallick
Fundamentals of Composite Manufacturing by Strong
Composite Materials Handbook by Schwartz
Design and Manufacture of Composite Structures by Eckhold
Prinicples of Composite Material Mechanics by Gibson

I also used publications and articles from Dow Chemical, Ashland Chemical and Reichhold.

If you need additional information or have questions, let me know.


RE: Fibreglass design/compositedesign procedure & manuel

Try SAMPE in Covina California.

Society for the Advancement of Materials and Process Engineering.

They'll have all the referances you need.  Every type of composite from Metal Matrix / SiC to bulk Fiberglas.

Engineering and Manufacturing too.

Try also SME - they have a composites group too - great in Manuf technology.

eBook - Rethink Your PLM
A lot has changed since the 90s. You don't surf the Web using dial-up anymore, so why are you still using a legacy PLM solution that's blocking your ability to innovate? To develop and launch products today, you need a flexible, cloud-based PLM, not a solution that's stuck in the past. Download Now
White Paper - Using Virtualization for IVI and AUTOSAR Consolidation on an ECU
Current approaches used to tackle the complexities of a vehicle’s electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture are both cost prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running on the same hardware. Download Now
White Paper - The Criticality of the E/E Architecture
Modern vehicles are highly sophisticated systems incorporating electrical, electronic, software and mechanical components. Mechanical systems are giving way to advanced software and electronic devices, driving automakers to innovate and differentiate their vehicles via the electric and electronic (E/E) architecture. As the pace of change accelerates, automotive companies need to evolve their development processes to deliver and maximize the value of these architectures. Download Now
