Comparison of Materials to Composites
The table below provides a rough comparison between various materials to consider for design and manufacturing, at low quantities (less than 10k annual). SFRP composite parts by OMS offer the best combination of cost and weight savings, especially for long-term outdoor terrestrial applications.
FREE online course content by John Pilling at Michigan Technical University offers excellent, comprehensive analysis of the theory and application of modern composite materials. See the section on Short Fiber Composites.
