to Polymer Composites.- Conventional Machining Operations.- Mechanics of Chip Formation.- Tool Materials and Tool Wear.- Conventional Machining of FRPs.- Nontraditional Machining of FRPs.- Health and Safety Aspects in Machining FRPs.
This excellent volume will serve as an indispensable reference and source book for process design, tool and production engineers in composite manufacturing. It provides the reader with a comprehensive treatment of the theory of machining as it applies to fiber reinforced polymer composites. It covers the latest technical advances in the area of machining and tooling, and discusses the applications of fiber reinforced polymer composites in the aircraft and automotive industries.
Discusses the applications of fiber reinforced polymer composites as they are used in the aircraft and automotive manufacturing industries
Addresses both man-made fiber reinforced polymers (carbon FRP, glass FRP, Aramid FRP and natural (wood) fiber reinforced polymers (medium density fiberboard, particleboard, wood fiber reinforced plastics, etc.)
