Fundamentals Of Fiber Orientation by Iii, Charles L. Polymers reinforced with discontinuous fibers have a wide range of important applications such as in automotive parts and business machines. The fl ow that occurs during processing of these materials creates a complex but repeatable pattern of fi ber orientation, which plays a key role in achieving the desirable mechanical properties these materials can offer.
The primary focus of this uniqu is fiber orientation: how to describe it mathematically, how to measure it experimentally, and how to predict it using models available in commercial software. Th also covers the description, measurement, and modeling of fi ber length, another important variable that can be predicted by commercial software. The connection between fi ber orientation and mechanical properties is explained, as is the relationship between fiber orientation and rheological properties in the fl uid state. "Fundamentals of Fiber Orientation" focuses on the models used in current engineering practice, but also discusses topics from current research that could transition to engineering practice soon.For practicing engineers, this book teaches the fundamentals needed to understand data, set up meaningful simulations, and interpret results. Th provides a thorough, organized overview of the field, and will also be a valuable resource to those undertaking research in this area.
