Composites technologies for transport applications

(1, 2)


Madmax partners and authors are writing this book to give their vision of the future regarding composite technologies in order to set off new research projects with partners from outside the consortium. So the book points out the boundaries of knowledge and can be seen as a call for projects. The book is divided into 7 chapters, each of them dealing with one stage of composites development: from raw materials, to textile reinforcement structures, to characterization methods, to modelling methods, to direct processing methods, to joining techniques and structural health monitoring. The first chapter reviews the principal raw materials, fibres and resins, used to manufacture composites and details their material properties. Promising fibres and resins for future composite structures are also highlighted. The second chapter recalls the main textile reinforcement structures and details their advantages and limits. Technological innovations are seen in the hybridization of reinforcement techniques to improve 3D preforms. The third chapter analyses the currently used characterisation methods and proposes some non-conventional methods. Chapter four is dealing with modelling methods for manufacturing processes and service life simulations. New modelling challenges are concerning new materials and new manufacturing processes that are emerging day by day in transport industry. Manufacturing processes are reviewed in the chapter five and focuses on ways to reach one-step direct processing. The chapter six reviews advantages and limits of joining techniques currently used for composites and highlights the most promising technologies. The chapter seven focuses on structural health monitoring for composites parts. The future of process monitoring and damage detection will certainly pass through the development of wireless structural health monitoring. Finally, the conclusion reviews the keys innovative technologies for each stage of composite development and invites engineers and researchers to join the consortium and set up joint research projects. The consortium would like to thank the authors of the chapters and especially Camille Durand who managed all partners to get this book.
