We have needed this book for some time. There is a very wide spectrum of management personnel, engineers in continuing education, specifiers, designers, graduate students--not to omit investors-who need this material as an intensive short course and reference work permanently at hand. Even in recession conditions the pultruded product business has grown by double-digit percentages, and this level of demand will continue as the U. S. infrastructure is renovated. Demand has stirred competition, in turn leading to product refinement. This technology development is taking place in materials, such as processable epoxy systems; in exotic but reliable production systems; and in mold/part complexity. The Handbook of Pultrusion Technology is essential to orient us in the fundamentals. The substance in Ray Meyer's treatment of this RP process is not available in any other compilation. Joseph S. McDermott, Manager Reinforced Plastics/Composites Institute The Society of the Plastics Industry, Inc. vii Preface Since my retirement five years ago I have had several oppor tunities to review my files and draft reports on pultrusion, especially for overseas clients. This book resulted from organ izing and updating these reports and filling in some of the gaps in my information.

Pultrusion for engineers is a comprehensive overview of the latest developments and applications for this growing and increasingly important area of the fibre reinforced plastics industry. Trevor Starr is well known as a specialist consultant with many year's experience in the FRP world. He has assembled an international panel of distinguished experts to provide the widest possible coverage of the state-of-the-art in novel pultrusion applications and development including many leading US researchers such as Brandt Goldworthy, regarded by many as the father of modern pultrusion. Because this book is one of very few to cover pultrusion, it is essential reading for industrial producers of pultruded profiles, chemical companies producing resins and composite materials specialists eager to reach the new markets in, for example, civil engineering that are rapidly being opened up to design solutions involving pultrusions.

This book presents direct and concise explanations and examples to many LaTeX syntax and structures, allowing students and researchers to quickly understand the basics that are required for writing and preparing book manuscripts, journal articles, reports, presentation slides and academic theses and dissertations for publication. Unlike much of the literature currently available on LaTeX, which takes a more technical stance, focusing on the details of the software itself, this book presents a user-focused guide that is concerned with its application to everyday tasks and scenarios. It is packed with exercises and looks at topics like formatting text, drawing and inserting tables and figures, bibliographies and indexes, equations, slides, and provides valuable explanations to error and warning messages so you can get work done with the least time and effort needed. This means LaTeX in 24 Hours can be used by students and researchers with little or no previous experience with LaTeX to gain quick and noticeable results, as well as being used as a quick reference guide for those more experienced who want to refresh their knowledge on the subject.

Manufacturing Process Selection Handbook provides engineers and designers with process knowledge and the essential technological and cost data to guide the selection of manufacturing processes early in the product development cycle. Building on content from the authors’ earlier introductory Process Selection guide, this expanded handbook begins with the challenges and benefits of identifying manufacturing processes in the design phase and appropriate strategies for process selection. The bulk of the book is then dedicated to concise coverage of different manufacturing processes, providing a quick reference guide for easy comparison and informed decision making. For each process examined, the book considers key factors driving selection decisions, including: Basic process descriptions with simple diagrams to illustrate Notes on material suitability Notes on available process variations Economic considerations such as costs and production rates Typical applications and product examples Notes on design aspects and quality issues Providing a quick and effective reference for the informed selection of manufacturing processes with suitable characteristics and capabilities, Manufacturing Process Selection Handbook is intended to quickly develop or refresh your experience of selecting optimal processes and costing design alternatives in the context of concurrent engineering. It is an ideal reference for those working in mechanical design across a variety of industries and a valuable learning resource for advanced students undertaking design modules and projects as part of broader engineering programs. Provides manufacturing process information maps (PRIMAs) provide detailed information on the characteristics and capabilities of 65 processes in a standard format Includes process capability charts detailing the processing tolerance ranges for key material types Offers detailed methods for estimating costs, both at the component and assembly level
