Thesis Topic/Title
Development of Pultrusion Process for advanced Civil Structures

Description

For civil and architectural composite structures, pultrusion is the manufacturing method of choice due to its ability to produce large sections in volume which are economical and consistent in quality. The pultrusion process is a continuous manufacturing process of “pulling” fibre reinforced profiles through a die, which contain heating and cooling zones for the impregnating resin. This project focuses on three major areas of development for increased productivity, a) resin system development, b) textile development, and c) process development. All these areas contribute to the productivity of the process and quality of the products produced.
