Carbon fiber

Carbon Fiber

By Group 7


Basic info

Basic Info

  • Made from a mix of polymer, which is reinforced by a coating of carbon

  • Close/Similar to the structure of fiberglass, except sturdier and lighter

  • Is sometimes mixed with metals such as aluminum

  • One of the newest man-made byproducts


How it s made

How It’s Made

  • Starts usually with an inner layer of fiberglass/carbon made-mould

  • Usually polished, smoothened, hardened

  • Then fiber and resins are added for flexibility/versatility

  • Finally compressed together


Importance

Importance?

  • This material has changed the structure of civil engineering

  • Enables most structures (i.e bridges) to strengthen and last longer

  • It has enabled engineers to choose a lighter yet sturdier alternative to steel


Breakthroughs

Breakthroughs

  • Carbon Fiber has proven:

  • Possibility for a material to have almost unlimited durability

  • Unlimited endurance limit for strength and loading

  • A material can be sturdy, strong and light


Advantages

Advantages

  • High resistance to heat (Melting Point 3,560 C)

  • Good electrical conductor

  • Light and strong

  • Can be both flexible and rigid- depending on fabric

  • High durability


Disadvantages

Disadvantages

  • Very Expensive

  • No known ways yet on how to mass produce

  • Few common uses

  • Non Biodegradable

  • Poor thermal conductor

  • Lack of vital materials needed to make Carbon Fiber


Carbon fiber

Uses

  • Body structures for cars

  • Dashboard for cars

  • Airplane fuselages

  • Bike frames

  • Bridge supports/Reinforcements

  • Covers of Laptops/Phones, Etc.

  • Electrical wirings
