Thermoplastics and Thermoplastic Composites Book Excerpt:

This book bridges the technology and business aspects of thermoplastics, providing a guide designed for engineers working in real-world industrial settings. The author explores the criteria for material selection, provides a detailed guide to each family of thermoplastics, and also explains the various processing options for each material type. More than 30 families of thermoplastics are described with information on their advantages and drawbacks, special grades, prices, transformation processes, applications, thermal behaviour, technological properties (tenacity, friction, dimensional stability), durability (ageing, creep, fatigue), chemical and fire behaviour, electrical properties, and joining possibilities. Biron explores the technological properties and economics of the major thermoplastics and reinforced thermoplastics, such as polyethylene, and emerging polymers such as polybenzimidazole, Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPEs) and bioplastics. In the second edition, a new section 'plastics solutions for practical problems' provides over 25 case studies illustrating a wide range of design and production challenges across the spectrum of thermoplastics, from metal and glass replacement solutions, to fire retardant plastics and antimicrobials. In addition, Biron provides major new material on bioplastics and wood plastic composites (WPCs), and fully updated data throughout. Combining materials data, information on processing techniques, and economic aspects (pricing), Biron provides a unique end-to-end approach to the selection and use of materials in the plastics industry and related sectors Includes a new section of case studies, illustrating best practice across a wide range of applications and industry sectors New material on bioplastics and sustainable composites

Plastic Pipe Systems Failure Investigation and Diagnosis Book Excerpt:

Industrial and domestic piping is increasingly made from various plastics and composites, and these materials withstand heavy use over long periods. They are, however, affected by environmental and other factors over time and can degrade, causing major problems within piping systems. Farshad's book deals with why plastic pipes and systems fail, and with how to investigate and diagnose such failures. Pipes may buckle, fracture, change in dimensions and colour, blister and delaminate, corrode through stress, be abraded and obstructed: all these cause problems and lead to loss of efficient operation of a system. The author's experience is backed up by a large data-base of results Wide target audience Only book covering the entire subject Unique approach based on long experience

Material Selection for Thermoplastic Parts Book Excerpt:

As new applications are developed and plastics replace traditional materials in a widening spectrum of existing applications, the potential personal injury, property damage, financial and legal consequences of failure can be high. However, nearly half of plastics failure can be traced back to the original specification and selection of the material. This book gives engineers the data they need to make an informed decision about the materials they use in their products, imparting a thorough knowledge of the advantages and disadvantages of the various materials to choose from. The data also suggests other candidate materials which the reader may not have originally considered. More than 30,000 thermoplastics grades are grouped into circa. 300 subfamilies, within which over 20 properties are assessed. The abundance or scarcity of a material and its cost are also often important deciding factors. In this book, an economical overview of the plastics industry helps clarify the actual consumption and costs of thermoplastics including bioplastic, and the relationship of cost vs. performance is also examined for each thermoplastic subfamily. Immediate and long-term common properties are reviewed, including mechanical behavior, impact, thermal properties, and many more. Environmental considerations are also covered, including ease of recycling and sustainability. Helps engineers to implement a systematic approach to material selection in their work Includes more than 300 subfamilies of thermoplastic, and a wide range of properties including chemical resistance, thermal degradation, creep and UV resistance Evaluates cost/performance relations and environmental considerations

Life Cycle Cost for Drainage Structures Book Excerpt:

Principal factors involved in the design of drainage structures include hydrology, soil conditions, material strength, material durability, cost, and type of facility being drained. Although not necessarily overriding, the cost is often one of the most important factors. This cost should be the total, overall cost of the alternative over its projected life or life cycle cost (LCC). Unless the LCC is considered over first cost, the owner cannot be assured of receiving maximum value for his construction and maintenance dollars. Except for determining a service life for the various types (materials) of drainage structures, the procedures for LCC analysis are well established. LCC based economic studies are an integral part of the complete design process and are a requirement specified in Technical Manual 5-802-1. AR 11-28/AFR 178-1 gives the basic criteria and standards for economic studies by and for the Departments of the Army and Air Force. The guidelines presented in Part II of this report can be used to estimate the service life of a particular design or ensure a 50-year service life. Thus, the procedures for economic analysis described in Technical Manual 5-802-1 can be used to determine LCC. The alternatives can then be order ranked based on LCC, and the best design can be rationally and confidently selected.

Evaluation of Service Life of Noise Barrier Walls in Illinois Book Excerpt:

The scope of this project included: development of a means to quantify the service lives of materials used for construction of noise barriers in Illinois; development of a life cycle cost model for the evaluation of alternative materials; and evaluation of the need for potential changes to the Special Provisions for noise barrier construction currently used in Illinois. The project included a survey of all state departments of transportation (DOTs) to develop information on experiences with noise barrier materials and products, which showed that nationwide, less than 1% of noise barriers by length have been repaired or replaced, and that few DOTs use life cycle cost analysis for selection of noise barriers. A comprehensive list of the materials currently approved for use in Illinois by the Illinois Highway Development Council was developed. The current condition of existing Illinois noise barriers was assessed by field observation, and Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) maintenance personnel were surveyed to develop information on maintenance histories, costs of repairs, scheduled repair or replacement of barriers, and estimated service lives of barriers in place. Service life criteria were developed considering the structural, acoustical, and aesthetic functions of noise barriers. A life cycle cost model was developed and the relative life cycle costs of existing Illinois noise barriers were computed. Noise barrier specifications supplied by IDOT and the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority were reviewed, and recommendations for improving the organization and content of the specifications were made.
