Effects of fiber tow misalignment on the engineering properties of plain weave textile composites Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Effects of fiber tow phase angle of the adjacent layers on the engineering properties of plain weave textile composites were studied. Unit cell analyses were performed for two-layer unit cell models with different fiber tow phase angles, and multi-field macroelements were used to reduce computer resource requirements. Results indicated that the engineering properties of plain weave textile composites can vary significantly according to the manner in which the layers are stacked. 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.
