Summary This books sets out an approach to the design and development of composite products that will lead to the maximum likelihood of developing commercially successful products, generally in the face of a great deal of uncertainty in most areas of the development process. The book is practically orientated, covering those areas of composite technology most critical to product developments, rather than those of the most theoretical importance, therefore providing a basis for mutual understanding among the broad field of composite specialists. The author's experience provides a hands-on approach to the methodology of design with composites. All those interested in composites design and manufacture, including those practising in such diverse fields as resin formulation, reinforcement, manufacture, design processing and manufacturing engineering will find this book invaluable.
