This textbook covers the processing of advanced composites and their various technologies, with special emphasis on the distinct characteristics of processability. The book covers the impact of different processing techniques on the performance and characteristics of the final product. Written with a didactic approach, the volume contains extensive illustrations and pedagogic features (including examples and exercises) to help the reader assess and correlate existing technologies. The book will be useful as a text in graduate courses in processing of polymers and composites and can additionally be used as a professional reference.
• Presents the role of processability in the selection of raw materials and the processing method for manufacturing polymeric composites
• Correlates between processability and structure-property of polymeric composites
• Benefits students, engineers and technologists who are pursuing a career in the field of processing advanced composites
