Filament winding is the most efficient method of manufacturing composite shapes. This book explores all aspects of filament winding, including capabilities and limitations of the process, fiber and resin handling, winding theory, software and numerical control, and more. Completely revised and updated from the previous version, the book focuses on automation, with five out of nine chapters discuss aspects of filament winding automation. The remaining chapters introduce mechanical testing, pressure vessels, and a description of industrial applications of filament winding. Photos of winding machines, composite fabrication, and end products accompany the text. Engineers, manufacturers, and instructors will appreciate this book’s practical approach.
