Filament Winding Composite Structure Fabrication

Filament winding is one of the oldest composite manufacturing methods. It was probably the first method to be automated, and remains today one of the most cost effective methods for mass production. Filament winding is also somewhat unique, being one of very few processes that does not build up the composite one uniform ply at a time.

“Filament Winding Composite Structure Fabrication” provides broad coverage of the filament winding process, showing the unique factors engineers must take into account when designing a wound structure. Unlike many books that cover a specific manufacturing process, “Filament Winding” sticks close to its topic and avoids more general composite discussions. In the fibers and resins chapter, for example, the authors give just a brief overview of fiber types, then go into more detail on resins used in and developed for filament winding.
