Title: COMPOSITE%20MATERIALS%20AND%20THEIR%20APPLICATIONS


1
COMPOSITE MATERIALS AND THEIR APPLICATIONS
2
introduction
  • I AM GOING TO DO A PRESENTATION ON SPORTS
    PERFORMANCE RELATED THINGS. AND I AM GOING TO
    TELL YOU ABOUT THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF COMPOSITE
    MATERIALS. I AM GOING TO TELL YOU THE ADVANTAGES
    AND DISADVANTAGES OF COMPOSITE MATERIALS. ALSO
    THE PEOPLE THAT WORK WITH COMPOSITE MATERIALS.

3
TYPES OF COMPOSITE MATERIALS
  • THERE ARE VARIOUS TYPES OF COMPOSITE MATERIALS
    AND HERE ARE TWO EXAMPLES- CARBON FIBRE AND
    FIBRE GLASS.
  • CARBON FIBRES-THESE ARE USED IN THE MAKING OF
    SPORTS EQUIPMENT.
  • FIBRE GLASS- IS USED IN THE MAKING OF RACING
    CARS AND OTHER SUCH VEHICLES.

4
Engineer
  • Engineers apply technology to build things
  • When it comes to building composites just about
    all engineers disciplines can be involved.
    Specific engineering tasks include, stress
    analysis, structural designs, materials
    processing, control systems, industrial
    processes, testing and more Engineers must have
    an under graduate degree and many have master
    degrees. Doctorates are less common.

5
Scientists
  • At the risk of oversimplifying things, Scientists
    develop the technologies that engineers apply. In
    general, then, they are more involved in basic
    research such as material development and
    structural theory. Of course, many engineers
    perform research, and many scientists work on
    engineering applications. Most scientistshave
    doctorates fewer stop at a Masters or Bachelors.

6
Technician
  • At the risk of over simplifying again, again
    technicians are people who do most of the
    hands-on work. They lay up the composites, do the
    machining, and produce the drawings. Technicians
    develop highly specialised skills, most of which
    are learned on the job. A vocational background
    or an associates degree is common.

7
Faculty (research)?
  • University faculty members can be either
    engineers or scientists, and the all most
    exclusively hold doctoral degrees. In contrasts
    to industry engineers, university professors in
    engineering departments focus more on research
    than on manufacture of a specific product. The
    research, however, might be orientated towards
    industry interests such as manufacturing
    processes.

8
Carbon fibre
  • You can golf, ride, sail, tennis, drive, cycle,
    fish, decorate or even fly carbon fibre.
  • AIRBUS A350
  • The development of this aircraft will see a
    further significant use of carbon fibre
    composites. The whole wing structure will be made
    out or carbon fibre.

9
Business
  • Any company needs staff for management, business
    development, sales, quality assurance,
    scheduling, and other tasks which are not
    directly technical. Some of these positions
    require detailed technical knowledge, and they
    are often filled by former engineers or
    technicians. Even though engineers might have
    advanced might have advanced degrees, some of
    business courses or even an MBA will help the
    transition into management.

10
Recycling
  • An important usage of concern involves the
    materials entire lifecycle, as carbon fibre
    reinforced plastics have an almost infinite
    lifetime. Some companies are succeeding in
    recycling this carbon fibre. The recycling
    strategy centres on milling, compounding or
    shredding the reclaimed carbon fibre, and finding
    use for this end product in various industrial
    applications (including carbon fibres
    applications less stringent than those required
    by, say, the aerospace industry). It is also
    commonly used in electronics, such as laptops, to
    lower the weight load and to improve durability.

11
Advantages of composite materials
  • The advantages of composite materials are that
    they are strong, dont rust easily and they are
    not heavy in any way.

12
Disadvantages of composite materials
  • The disadvantages of composite materials are that
    they are very expensive to buy and difficult to
    stick to other materials.

13
People who work with composite materials
  • The people who work with composite materials are
    -
  • Footballers
  • Ice skaters
  • Basket ball players
  • Pilots
  • Builders etc.

14
Summary (what we found out about)?
  • We found out about composite materials and what
    they are and how they work, what they are made of
    and what they are like to buy, whether they are
    expensive and what they are like to keep.

15
Jordan extreme boots
  • Which air Jordans are the lightest?
  • Well most people would say air Jordan xi are the
    lightest but I dont think it has been proven.
  • They are light, they have speed lace toggles,
    heels, PHYLON mid-sole, mid-foot strap, ankle
    leash, suspension, medial air vents and carbon
    fibre shanks plates.

16
Tennis rackets
  • Ordinary rackets are made of millions of carbon
    fibres that are linked together and then heat
    shaped but when a racket is n-coded nano sized
    silicone oxide crystals permeate the voids
    between the carbon fibres. The results are two
    times the strength, two times the stability and
    22 more power than an ordinary racket.

17
bicycles
  • Team GB cycling team were equipped with carbon
    fibre bikes that were designed and built by ACG
    when they competed at the Athens Olympics in
    august 2004 winning two gold, one silver and one
    bronze between them.
