Editorial Reviews

Review

Sanjay Mazumdar's book entitled Composites Manufacturing is intended to serve as a textbook for college students and/or a self-study took for engineers and professionals in the composites industry...The book is well written and illustrated, logically organized and easy to follow. This book is a welcome to my library and is recommended to the readers with interest in the manufacturing of composites.
-Jovan Mijovic, Professor, Polytechnic University

…a very good book that provides a comprehensive coverage for many aspects of Manufacturing of Composites…For a newcomer, this book provides a good introduction into the many facets of Composites Manufacturing that needs to be known.
Professor Hoa, pioneer of the course on Composite Manufacturing, CompositesWeek

…a wonderful checklist for those of us that have spent 30 years in the composite industry. It is a wonderful tool chest of knowledge that we all can use for review. This book is very much needed in the industry, to help train new people in the craft that most of us learned by the school of trial and error…I no longer see this book as it is being read by everyone around here…very impressed with this new book.
-John Turner, Senior Manufacturing Engineer at Hitco Carbon Composites, Inc.,

A comprehensive guide to composites that encompasses aspects for design, manufacture, tooling, and cost considerations of this complex field for aerospace and commercial applications. This book is an excellent source of information for all disciplines, bringing together both introductory and advanced resources in one publication.
-Gerald E. Sutton, Vice President-RTM
Advanced Technical Products, Inc., Intellitec Division, DeLand, Florida, USA

This book is suitable for a broad range of users. It focuses on the fundamental processes an engineer or program manager must address when planning to employ advanced composites into his or her project. The book encompasses the latest technology and design issues as composite design science matures.
-John Marks, Vice President and General Manager, COI Materials Inc., San Diego, California, USA

…Provides a broad overview of the topics of composites manufacturing…Pulls together key references and provides guidelines to help navigate through this complex field…Covers many topics not often covered elsewhere, such as production planning, cost, and recycling…
-Timothy Gutowski, Professor
Department of Mechanical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA

This is a good, basic introduction to the field of composites manufacturing and product development. The cost estimating and production planning chapters are very comprehensive. It contains many references to sources of more detailed information.
-Dr. John O. Taylor, Vice President, Engineering and R&D, Goodrich Corporation, Glacier Garlock Bearings Division, Thorofare, New Jersey, USA

Format: Hardcover
I was doing some research and had high hopes for this book.
It was disappointing, for instance, I saw that there was a sub chapter about mold stiffness. Thinking that would probably explain how to calculate and design for appropriate mold stiffness, I bought the book. It literally simply says something along the lines of "make sure the mold is stiff enough." Well, I guess they covered that... Maybe the author was in a rush.

The book is filled with this sort of checking off the boxes approach without a lot of substance. Many of the graphs were originally in color and are reproduced in non gray scale black and white and are completely useless.

It is more a giant list of technologies and considerations. A very expensive list.

Incredibly, the book is also physically disappointing. The spine delaminated when I first opened it, basically destroying the integrity of the book. I am unimpressed.
