The current situation with regard to the use of high-performance composites is one of seeking a reliable means of characterizing the fundamental properties and/or behavior of composite materials. The employment of such materials in vi tal structural applications require criteria as part of the materials selection and design procedures. However, the principal limitation of the many currently available procedures, most of which were borrowed from the metal i"ndustry, is its intrinsic restriction to single phase materials. They cannot adequately ac count for the variations in the constituents or structure of the composite that can have a significant influence on its gross behavior. Although a considerable amount of research has been conducted in the past with the objective of under standing composite material behavior, for the most part, the research efforts tended to cover too wide a spectrum of problems with little penetration into the fundamental aspects. For this reason, the investigators in this field have long felt the need to bring together a small group of experts to review the fun damentals, discuss the problem areas, and display the current developments. The USA-USSR Sympo~~ on the f~ct~e 06 Compo~~e Mat~ was organized for this purpose. There is the additional need to share this information with the new comers to the field as well as the oldtimers. This is accomplished by publish ing the symposium proceedings contained in the present volume. A Russian trans lation of the papers in this volume will also be made available.

Glass Fibre Reinforcements form the foundation of a composites industry with a global annual production of greater than 10 million tons of high performance, light-weight materials. Possibly the most critical component involved in the manufacture of glass fibres and their composites is the fibre surface coating (or size). Yet because of the intense level of industrial secrecy around size formulations there are very few people in the vast chain of composite materials suppliers, processors and end users who have more than a superficial understanding of these coatings. Many questions are raised about glass fibre size by this large and growing composite community. But the most frequently asked is “what is actually in the size on this glass fibre product?” There is only one source of openly available information on commercial size formulations and that is the patents of the glass fibre manufacturers. This book contains analysis of more than 500 examples of patented size formulations many of which are probably still in use in commercial glass fibre production. The information is tabulated to allow readers to easily identify the similarities and differences between the sizes and their glass fibre products developed for different composite end-use applications, different composite processing techniques, and compatibility with different polymers. Also included is a chapter discussing how patents and their associated information can be used to gain insight into which size formulations may actually be in use in glass fibre production.List of Chapter Titles• Introduction • Sizes And Sizing In Glass Fibre Production• Size Formulations In Patents• Size Patents Of Owens Corning• Size Patents Of Vetrotex• Size Patents Of PPG Fiber Glass• Size Patents From Other Companies• Glass Fibre Product Identification• Conclusions From This Review244 pages, 13 Figures, 131 Tables, 5 Appendices

This project is a continuation in the investigation of ways in which cork can be incorporated into composite material for boats and kayaks without significant performance losses. Fiberglass lay-ups (cloth, mat, and epoxy) and cork-epoxy samples are prepared by vacuum bagging. Samples undergo a three-point bending test (ASTM D79o) and a Charpy impact test (ASTM D611o) to investigate maximum flexural stress, effective elastic modulus, and impact resistance. Fiberglass-epoxy samples serve as the control for comparing the results of the cork composite samples. The average flexural strength of the fiberglass ranged from 191-234 MPa with the different configurations of fiberglass cloth. The effective elastic modulus ranged from 8.4-10 MPa. These values fall in the lower range of other composites when compared to general Ashby charts. Its impact resistance, taken with respect to cross-sectional area to account for variations in the thickness from sample to sample in the formation process, ranged from 54.9 to 64.5 kJ/m2. The cork composite samples were at least four times weaker than their fiberglass counterparts in all investigated respects. However, the cork samples were up to three times lighter and needed less than half of the epoxy the fiberglass samples required. The inclusion of fiberglass cloth helped increase its strength significantly without sacrifice to weight, indicating the likely need to incorporate chopped fiberglass strands in future testing.

Fiberglass and Glass Technology: Energy-Friendly Compositions and Applications provides a detailed overview of fiber, float and container glass technology with special emphasis on energy- and environmentally-friendly compositions, applications and manufacturing practices which have recently become available and continue to emerge. Energy-friendly compositions are variants of incumbent fiberglass and glass compositions that are obtained by the reformulation of incumbent compositions to reduce the viscosity and thereby the energy demand. Environmentally-friendly compositions are variants of incumbent fiber, float and container glass compositions that are obtained by the reformulation of incumbent compositions to reduce environmentally harmful emissions from their melts. Energy- and environmentally-friendly compositions are expected to become a key factor in the future for the fiberglass and glass industries. This book consists of two complementary sections: continuous glass fiber technology and soda-lime-silica glass technology. Important topics covered include: o Commercial and experimental compositions and products o Design of energy- and environmentally-friendly compositions o Emerging glass melting technologies including plasma melting o Fiberglass composite design and engineering o Emerging fiberglass applications and markets Fiberglass and Glass Technology: Energy-Friendly Compositions and Applications is written for researchers and engineers seeking a modern understanding of glass technology and the development of future products that are more energy- and environmentally-friendly than current products.

Carbon Nanotube Reinforced Composites introduces a wide audience of engineers, scientists and product designers to this important and rapidly expanding class of high performance composites. Dr Loos provides readers with the scientific fundamentals of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), CNT composites and nanotechnology in a way which will enable them to understand the performance, capability and potential of the materials under discussion. He also investigates how CNT reinforcement can be used to enhance the mechanical, electrical and thermal properties of polymer composites. Production methods, processing technologies and applications are fully examined, with reference to relevant patents. Finally, health and safety issues related to the use of CNTs are investigated. Dr. Loos compares the theoretical expectations of using CNTs to the results obtained in labs, and explains the reasons for the discrepancy between theoretical and experimental results. This approach makes the book an essential reference and practical guide for engineers and product developers working with reinforced polymers – as well as researchers and students in polymer science, materials and nanotechnology. A wealth of applications information is included, taken from the wide range of industry sectors utilizing CNT reinforced composites, such as energy, coatings, defense, electronics, medical devices, and high performance sports equipment. Introduces a wide range of readers involved in plastics engineering, product design and manufacturing to the relevant topics in nano-science, nanotechnology, nanotubes and composites.
