Hole-making is one of the most commonly used processes in the machining of composites. Poor quality will result in reduced assembly tolerance and long-term deterioration of structural performance. Hole-making remains a dominant driver of efficiency, cost and safety issues and as such it receives considerable effort towards improving performance, consistency of quality and security. Success requires defining and addressing a number of factors that determine the most suitable cutting tool and process.
This book provides practical guidance on hole-making and drilling technology and its application in composite materials and structures. Chapters are designed via selected case studies to identify the knowledge gap in hole-making operations in composites and to highlight the deficiencies of the current methods. It will document the latest research as well as provide a better understanding of the pattern and characterization of holes produced by various technologies in composite materials.
The book will be an essential reference resource for academic and industrial researchers and professional involved in the manufacturing and machining of composites as well as postgraduate students and designers working on the design and fabrication of polymeric composites in automotive and aerospace applications.
- Features updated information on the most relevant hole drilling methods and potential to be applied in aircraft and other structural applications
- Features practical guidance for the end user on how to select the most appropriate method when designing fibre-reinforced composite materials
- Demonstrates systematic approaches and investigations on design, development, and characterization of ‘composite materials’ in order to establish their important relationship with end-user applications
