This book is dedicated to heat transfer in organic matrix composite materials and their forming processes.
The forming of composite materials has recently become a major topic of research in terms of experimentation, modeling and simulation, where several scientific disciplines must come together in order to achieve the desired properties of manufactured parts.
The author brings together academic and industrial research from different disciplines around thermal sciences to provide the basis on heat transfer during the processing of polymers and composites, as well as the latest methods and techniques to help in the solving of many issues within these topics.
This book provides theoretical and practical information to understand, measure and describe heat transfer during forming processes (in the tool as well as in the composite part) both from a physical and numerical point of view, and introduces the required couplings.
