Polymer-Based Composite Structures: Processing and Applications

Abstract

The present chapter focuses on the processing and applications of polymer-based composite structures, as they constitute an important class of materials and share a significant part of engineering material market. These processing techniques are hand layup, vacuum bag, pressure bag, filament winding, pultrusion, resin transfer molding, vacuum-assisted resin transfer molding, compression molding, structural reaction injection molding, structural foam reaction injection molding, sandwich molding, etc.
