Cost analysis in using non-crimp fabric composites in engineering applications

Schubel, P. (2011) Cost analysis in using non-crimp fabric composites in engineering applications. In: Non-crimp fabric composites: manufacturing, properties and applications. Woodhead Publishing Limited, United Kingdom, pp. 494-510. ISBN 9781845697624


This chapter describes the process for cost modelling non-crimp fabric (NCF) based composite structures. The chapter first looks at an overview of cost modelling techniques used in the composites industry and then focuses on the technical cost modelling (TCM) approach which is used in the case study. The case study presented investigates the cost centres for a 40. m wind turbine blade shell using NCF and a variety of manufacturing processes.
