About this Textbook

This book presents the basics of fiber reinforced polymers (FRP). The author presents the material-specific advantages of FRP and the typical areas of their application. The problems created by conventional, non-integrating product development are listed and the author states how these problems are potentially overcome by integrated product development (IPD). In addition, it is explained why IPD is of particular importance for FRP. An approach to IPD for FRP-parts is presented. It is explained step by step how a catalogue of requirements is defined as well as how this basis is used to develop a concept, a design, and a final construction. Simple but effective methods for the selection of fiber materials, semi-finished products and manufacturing processes are highlighted in this book. A concluding chapter describes an approach to techno-economic evaluation. Throughout the book, practical application examples show the reader how to put the gained knowledge into practice.


About the authors

David May received his doctorate degree in 2015 from the Technical University Kaiserslautern, where he since then lectures “integrated product development with composites”. In 2021 he completed his habilitation on process engineering for composites. He currently manages an interdisciplinary research group at the Leibniz-Institut für Verbundwerkstoffe in Kaiserslautern. Manufacturing technologies for polymer composites are his main research focus.
