Sample text

In civil engineering there are currently two processes which come under this heading: (1) the resin infusion under flexible tooling (RIFT) (2) the XX-sys Technologies process. (i) The resin infusion under flexible tooling (RIFT) process The semi-automated RIFT process has been developed to retrofit carbon fibre composites to steel, cast iron and concrete structures. The high quality composites which are formed in situ are bonded to the structure in one operation, by the laminating resin, during the manufacturing procedure.

Mainly for the building industry; a discussion of these articles is outside the remit of this book. The co-extrusion process manufactures multi-layered. Chapter 3. Manufacture and properties of advanced polymer composites relevant to civil engineering 49 Maximum load that material can support (/) Fibre being formed The greater the elongation of the specimen the greater is the degree of alignment of the molecules of the material strain Fig. 4.
