    Introduction to Composites

    Published: 2001
    Authors: Daniel B. Miracle and Steven L. Donaldson, Air Force Research Laboratory

    A COMPOSITE MATERIAL is a macroscopic combination of two or more distinct materials, having a recognizable interface between them. Composites are used not only for their structural properties, but also for electrical, thermal, tribological, and environmental applications.

    Processing of Composites

    Published: July 20, 2017
    Authors: R. Davé, A. Loos

    Composite materials have been acclaimed as the "Materials of the Future." What makes the fabrication of these materials so complex is that it involves simultaneous heat, mass, and momentum transfer, along with chemical reactions in a multiphase system with time-dependent material properties and boundary conditions.

    Design with Composites

    Published: 1997
    Authors: R.J. Diefendorf, Clemson University

    THE QUEST for improved performance has caused designers to search for materials with lower density, higher modulus, and higher theoretical strength than the common engineering metals. There are a number of elements and compounds, all centered around carbon in the periodic table, that have lower density and high modulus and strength.

    Recycling of aluminum matrix composites

    Published: March 01, 1999

    Separation of matrix metals in composites was tried on alumina short fiber-reinforced aluminum and 6061 alloy composites and SiC whisker-reinforced 6061 alloy composite for recycling. It is possible to separate molten matrix metals from fibers in the composites using fluxes that are used for melt treatment to remove inclusions.

    Properties of Metal-Matrix Composites

    Published: 2001
    Authors: David E. Alman, U.S. Department of Energy, Albany Research Center

    METAL-MATRIX COMPOSITES (MMCs) are a diverse class of materials that consist of a metallic alloy matrix typically reinforced with a ceramic phase in the form of particles, platelets, whiskers, short fibers, and continuously aligned fibers (Ref , , and ).

    Processing of Carbon-Carbon Composites

    Published: 2001

    CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITES (CCCs), high-density carbon fibers in a carbon matrix, began replacing fine-grained graphite as nose tips in rockets in the mid-1960s.

    Thermoplastic Composites Manufacturing

    Published: 2001
    Authors: B. Tomas Åström, IFP SICOMP AB, Sweden

    THE GREATER PART of the "Manufacturing Processes" Section in this Volume is devoted to widely accepted and commercially important manufacturing techniques for polymer composites, and it so happens that with one notable exception (compression molding), these techniques almost entirely rely on the matrix being a thermoset polymer.
