Discontinuous carbon fibre composites for automotive applications
Harper, Lee Thomas (2006) Discontinuous carbon fibre composites for automotive applications. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Increasingly stringent emissions targets are encouraging vehicle manufacturers to prioritise reduction of vehicle mass. The falling cost of carbon fibre is increasing the viability of lightweight carbon-based body panel systems across a broad range of production volumes. In the present work an automated process has been developed for the manufacture of random fibre preforms at medium volume production levels (30-50,000ppa).
