Manufacturing defects as a cause of failure in polymer matrix composites

K. Potter,     University of Bristol, UK

Abstract:

This chapter considers the ways in which composite parts can deviate from their intended performance due to issues arising in design and manufacture. It covers the variability of manufacture and the interactions between design, materials and processes, and indicates the level of property reductions that can be experienced. It concludes with future trends in materials and manufacture.
