Increasing the use of fibre-reinforced composites in the Sasol group of companies : a case study
A composite material comprises two or more materials with properties that are superior to those of the individual constituents. Composites have become important engineering materials, especially in the fields of chemical ...
Methodologies for the optimization of fibre-reinforced composite structures with manufacturing uncertainties
Fibre Reinforced Plastics (FRPs) have been used in many practical structural applications due to their excellent strength and weight characteristics as well as the ability for their properties to be tailored to the ...
Material characterisation for the modelling of the vacuum infusion process
Vacuum Infusion (VI) and Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) are liquid composite moulding processes used in the manufacture of components from composite materials. The composite material in this case consists of a resin matrix ...
