This book covers the following topics: extrusion compounding and injection moulding, major factors affecting mechanical performance, stress transfer, strength, elastic modulus flexural modulus, thermal conductivity and expansion, non-linear stress-strain behaviour and fracture mechanics of short fibre reinforced polymers.
With its distinguished team of authors, Science and engineering of short fibre reinforced polymer composites is a standard reference for anyone involved in the development, manufacture and use of SFRPs. It will also provide an in-depth understanding of the behaviour of these versatile materials.
- Reviews the mechanical properties and functions of short fibre reinforced polymer composites (SFRP)
- Examines recent developments in the fundamental mechanisms of SFRP's
- Assesses major factors affecting mechanical performance such as stress transfer and strength
