Background
Background

Composite materials (or composites for short) are engineered materials made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties and which remain separate and distinct on a macroscopic level within the finished structure. (Wikipedia)


Background1
Background

Arg-e-Bam, IRAN.

Constructed in 20 hectares, More than 1400 years ago.

The most primitive composite materials comprised straw and mud in the form of bricks for building construction


Background2
Background

There are two categories of constituent materials: matrix and reinforcement. The matrix material surrounds and supports the reinforcement materials by maintaining their relative positions. The reinforcements impart their special mechanical and physical properties to enhance the matrix properties.

The most famous composite is called fiberglass which is made of glass fibers as the reinforcement and polyester (or epoxy) resin as the matrix.


Applications
Applications

Most industries have a connection with composite materials.

Due to high strength and light weight of composite materials, aerospace industries use composite materials. Carbon fibers and fiberglass are used in Aerospace industries.

Leading edge of the wings, vertical and horizontal tails, compressed air tanks, nose cone, fuselage, etc. are made of composite materials.

Applications

Most sport equipment are sued by fiberglass.

Ski and ski pole are made by composite materials.


Application
Application

Fiberglass finishing

Civil Engineers are familiar with composite materials. They use composites to reinforce the structure against seismic loads.


Applications10
Applications

Composite swimming

pool

Applications

Composite Domes


Applications13
Applications

Reinforcement of Building by composite materials


Applications14
Applications

Wind turbines are made composite materials. Some of their blades have 100 m length.


Applications15
Applications

As a general rule, when one needs light structure with high strength, composite materials are the best choice.

Some part of the body of high speed trains are made by composites. Further more the interiors are made by composites.


Applications16
Applications

High speed Japan train


Applications17
Applications

Monorail Interior, Malaysia


Applications18
Applications

Monorail body, Malaysia


Applications19
Applications

Also other thousands of applications can be found if one search “composite” or “Fiberglass” in internet!!


Manufacturing technologies
Manufacturing Technologies

  • Every composite parts needs master and mould.

  • The common manufacturing techniques are:

    • Hand layup.

    • Spray Up.

    • Resin Transfer Molding (RTM).

    • Resin Infusion.

    • Filament Winding.

    • Sheet Metal Compound (SMC).

    • Bulk Molding Compound (BMC).
