fibre alignment composite materials

Fibre Reinforced Composites | School of Materials Science and

Fibre reinforced composites are classed as either continuous (long fibres) or discontinuous (short fibres). When the fibres are aligned they provide maximum strength but only along the direction of alignment. The composite is considerably weaker along other directions and is therefore highly anisotropic. a) b) c)

Development of high performance recycled carbon fibre

The developed alignment process allows discontinuous random recycled carbon fibre to be processed into tapes with a highly aligned orientation distribution. This allows composites with high fibre content to be manufactured at lower moulding pressures with the added benefit of keeping fibre length degradation to a minimum. To evaluate the

Abstract. High strength material composite structures are formed with oriented fibers to provide controlled anisotropic fibers. Fibers suspended in non-dilute concentrations (e.g. up to 20 volume percent for fibers having an aspect ratio of 20) in a selected medium are oriented by moving an axially spaced array of elements in the direction of desired fiber alignment.
