Anisotropic three-dimensional arrays of fibres

K.H.G. Ashbee     Shrewsbury, UK

Abstract

Laminates are prone to delamination and, to avoid all problems posed by delamination, several methods of three-dimensional fibre reinforcement are considered here. These range from how best to design fibre-reinforced deep sea submersibles using fibre and matrix materials that transmit sound waves, to three-dimensional rigid fibre reinfocement with cubic (but not isotropic) symmetry, to weakly and to strongly anisotropic three-dimensional weaves of flexible fibres.
