THE PROCESSING OF FIBRE REINFORCED COMPONENTS FOR REDUCTION IN WEIGHT OF THE AUTOMOBILE

This is the first report on the work being conducted on the processing of fibre reinforced plastic components (NERDDC project 79/9344). The work is motivated by the real need to establish a relationship between the rheological properties of the polymer-fibre system and the fibre orientation which results from flows currently being considered for the mass production of lightweight yet structurally sound components for the automotive industry. The research is in the very early stages and hence the report is primarily concerned with establishing and discussing the framework in which the research is being conducted. (Author/TRRL)
