Tri-Axial Quasi-Three-Dimensional Woven Fabric

IntroductionEngineers increasingly use fiber-reinforced composite materials, particularly for automotive, marine, and armor designs, because of high stiffness and strength with low density. Engineers can also tailor the materials’ orthotropic properties to specific applications where certain properties are required in only particular directions...

Topologically Controlled Composite Materials with High Energy Absorption Capability

IntroductionConventional fiber composites are prone to severe delamination, cracking, and fiber breakage upon projectile impact. This lack of toughness is a critical limitation on the possible uses of the composite.Description of TechnologyThe technology describes the formation of a composite structure using a variety of fiber configurations that provide...
