Abstract

As the application of fibre reinforced polymer composites (FRP) becomes more widespread there is a desire to add functionality beyond that of simple mechanical properties in order to facilitate the development of 'smart' materials. Magnetic FRP material has been developed which utilizes hollow glass fibres filled with magnetic material. This paper will discuss the manufacture, optimization and applications of magnetic FRP materials. The magnitude of magnetic performance that can be currently achieved is controlled by the availability of suitable magnetic materials in fine powder form, and the volume of magnetic material that can be incorporated within the fibres.
