About the book

Epoxy-based Composites are widely used in Automotive, Aerospace, Marine and Defense Applications because of their lesser weight, higher mechanical properties and better resistance to wear and corrosion. Polymer matrix composites can be prepared using the hand lay-up technique, compression molding, spray-up and pultrusion process.

This book presents various manufacturing methods used to fabricate epoxy-based composites and mechanical testing of composites such as hardness, microhardness, tensile strength, fatigue strength, creep strength. It covers the tribology aspects of epoxy-based composites under dry and wet sliding conditions, corrosive behavior and water absorption studies on polymer matrix composites. In addition, machinability studies on epoxy-based composites used to produce the end products are reported.

This book aims to become useful to the Industrialist, undergraduate and postgraduate students, research scholars and scientists to understand the manufacturing methods, mechanical testing, wear and corrosive behavior, machinability studies and applications of epoxy-based composites in various sectors.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
