Table of Contents

Flexible textile composite microscopy; 3-D confocal microscopy of glass fibre-reinforced composites; Geometric modelling of yarn and fibre assemblies; Characterisation of yarn shape in woven fabric composites; Quantitative microstructural analysis for continuous fibre composites; Electron microscopy of polymer composites; Micromechanics of reinforcement using laser Raman spectroscopy; Acoustic microscopy of ceramic fibre composites.


Description

Over the last 50 years, great progress has been made in developing artificial fibre-reinforced composite materials, generally using filaments with microscopic diameters. A wide range of reinforcement forms, from random arrays to fully aligned, can be used for commercial applications, with the microstructure being a critical factor in realising the required properties in a material.

This is the first up-to-date review of how to apply advanced microstructural characterisation techniques to fibre-reinforced composites. Each chapter is designed to offer both a stand-alone introduction to its topic and detailed referencing for follow-up research. With contributions from experts from around the world, the book will be an essential reference for materials scientists and research workers in industry and academia alike.
