Fiber Technology for Fiber-Reinforced Composites provides a detailed introduction to fiber reinforced composites, explaining the mechanics of fiber reinforced composites, along with information on the various fiber types, including manufacturing of fibers (starting from monomers and precursors), fiber spinning techniques, testing of fibers, and surface modification of fibers.
As material technologies develop, composite materials are becoming more and more important in transportation, construction, electronics, sporting goods, the defense industry, and other areas of research. Many engineers working in industry and academics at universities are trying to manufacture composite materials using a limited number of fiber types with almost no information on fiber technology, fiber morphology, fiber properties, and fiber sizing agents. This book fills that gap in knowledge.

Dr. Seydibeyoglu is an international researcher working on polymeric composites based in Turkey. He completed his BSc and MSc degrees on Materials and Polymers respectively at the Middle East Technical University, Turkey and completed his PhD at Istanbul Technical University, Turkey on micro/nanocomposites. During his PhD studies he was granted the Norwegian Scholarship on nanocellulose research and he was invited by Prof. Kristiina Oksman to Sweden in 2007. In 2009-2010, he conducted post-doctoral studies with Prof. Amar Mohanty and Prof. Manjusri Misra on biocomposites. After his post-doc study, he joined the Carbon Fiber Company, AKSA Akrilik Kimya, Turkey as a Research Associate and worked for 1.5 years on carbon fiber and composites. Since 2012, he has been a faculty member at Izmir Katip Celebi University. During his faculty time, he has won the South African Scholarship to visit CSIR Composites group for 3 weeks where he published a book chapter. In 2017, he was UK Newton Fund Research Fellowship holder to conduct research on additive manufacturing. Since 2019, he has been a part-time faculty member at Jönköping University, Sweden. He has close to 40 SCI publications, 15 book chapters, 1 book [edited] and more than 50 conference publications and 4 patents.
