SAE International’s book, Economics of Composites, captures the state of the composites industry to assist engineering/technical professionals in charting a course for achieving economic success. The book explores the material characteristics of composites, their applications, and the complex composites manufacturing processes. The expert panel of writers from various industry segments (i.e., commercial/military aerospace, wind energy, automotive, and bicycle industries) addresses fundamental topics and explores the affordability of composites from raw material to end-of-life disposal costs. The writers’ skilled perspectives include material characteristics and economics of composite structure, complex manufacturing and specifics of assembly methods, applications for composites, product and human health, and safety and environmental impacts. The content conveys both the reality of the industry, as well as the trends and constantly emerging challenges that impact the cost of composites and are necessary for return on investment, as well as enabling the full potential of composites.
