Conventional artificial fabrics, like metals, ceramics or glass, are typically isotropic components, and their suitability for structural functions is completed by way of morphological layout and blend within the macroscopic scale. despite the fact that, in modem engineering this is now not applicable. instead, using non-homogeneous, anisotropic fabrics, with major stiffness and power merely within the instructions those mechanical homes are quite wanted, may end up in huge, immense fabric (and weight) reductions. this is often the case of multiphase structures referred to as composite fabrics. In those composites, assorted fabric elements are additional and organized geometrically, less than basically designed and regulated stipulations. frequently, a constitution of fibers presents energy and stiffness and a matrix helds them jointly, when supplying the geometric shape. Carbon fibers are one of the high-performance fibers hired in those complicated structural composites, that are profoundly altering a lot of ultra-modern excessive know-how industries. New study and improvement demanding situations during this region contain upgrading the producing means of fibers and composites, with a view to enhance features and decrease expenditures, and editing the interfacial houses among fibers and matrix, to assure larger mechanical houses. The interdisciplinary nature of this "new frontier" is apparent, regarding chemistry, fabrics technology, chemical and mechanical engineering. different subject matters, which extra frequently are taken care of individually, also are very important for the knowledge of the tactics of fiber creation. Carbon filaments is one such subject, because the learn in their mechanisms of nucleation and progress is obviously really appropriate to the creation of vapour-grown carbon fibers.

Example text

Originally, when mesophase fibers were introduced, their eventual cost was projected be as low as $16/kg. Hughes (1987) indicates that the unexpected high cost of mesophase fibers is the result of the extensive purification needed to remove flaw inducing particles from the precursor. This is partly true, but as this chapter explains, in present commercial processes, spinning and heat treatment add unexpectedly to the cost of the final product. 47 Table 1. Cost of PAN-, mesophase-, and pitch-based carbon fibers.

This is the goal, which has to be approached as near as possible. Please consider, however, that perfect orientation with infinitive large po1yaromatics would introduce the problem with C33 and C44 in graphite, that means weakness perpendicular to the fibre axis and lack in shear resistance. Nevertheless, a further improvement of the strength seems to be in the range of realizability. The simplest way would be further thinning of the fibre diameter. Latest fibre generation has an average diameter of 5 - 6 pm and is to compare with the average diameter of 8 pm for the HT standard qualities.

The density of the stabilized fibre is a measure of the oxygen content and can be used as an indication of the reaction rate. This result on the catalytic influence of ITA is also interesting from a historical viewpoint, namely the British carbon fibre development from COURTAULD's textile PAN precursor which contained itaconic acid as a dyeing component. From the theoretical viewpoint a homopolymer will result in a higher carbon yield than copolymers because all comonomers have additional side chains and oxygen contents.
