Jorge Nasseh, CEO of Barracuda Group (Bellaire, Texas) is launching the first edition of “Resin Infusion Processing in Composites” (Processo de Infusão a Vácuo em Composites). As the recipient of numerous international scientific awards and the author of several books in the field of composite engineering, the author draws on an extensive technical background, combined with insight into the practical issues associated with state-of-the-art resin infusion processes.
Jorge Nasseh specifies, in more than 400 pages, the details of material selection for vacuum-assisted composite construction, the physics and history of the process, computer simulation and infusion strategies, permeability testing and calculation. The first edition of this volume is preceded by two prefaces: the first, written by SAMPE Global Technical Director, Dr. Scott Beckwitt, and the second by Owens Corning Global Composite President, Marcio Sandri (Toledo, Ohio, U.S.)
Jorge Nasseh is also the author of “Boat Construction Manual in Composites,” “Advanced Methods in Composite Construction” and “Theory and Practice of Composite Construction.” All books were written in Brazilian Portuguese.
There are numerous methods for fabricating composite components. Selection of a method for a particular part, therefore, will depend on the materials, the part design and end-use or application. Here's a guide to selection.
As resin infusion continues to infiltrate composites, fabricators across the market spectrum drive materials and process developments in pursuit of process control.
