Laminated composite fabrics were used because the Sixties for structural functions. this primary iteration of fabrics have been profitable as a result of fabrics excessive stiffness and energy functionality. The goals of this publication are to explain the producing approaches, to focus on the benefits, to spot the most functions, to examine the equipment for prediction of mechanical homes and to target the foremost technical points of those fabrics with the intention to become aware of how larger to take advantage of their features and to beat their hazards on the subject of the laminated composite materials.

This booklet covers many components relating to 3D cloth fabric applied sciences, and production is handled as a key factor. Theoretical elements of micro- and macromechanics are coated intensive, in addition to houses and behavior. particular concepts together with braiding, sewing and knitting are defined and in comparison for you to assessment the main beautiful configurations to be had in the meanwhile. current and destiny purposes and traits are defined to demonstrate that three-D textiles are a part of the true business international not just this day yet the following day in addition.

When comparing quasi-isotropic composites with metals, one will find that mass savings of more than 30% compared with aluminium, and 60% compared with steel are feasible. Nevertheless, this comparison is based on ‘idealized’ laboratory-scale values determined under the following conditions: unidirectional reinforcement, high fibre volume fraction (60%), tensile load, no fibre undulation and no delaminations. 1 Comparison between mechanical performance of metals and composite materials. 2 Degradation of composite performance due to manufacturing and in-service effects.

6 shows double T-shaped beams, typical structural components in automotive and aerospace design, after longitudinal and transversal crash tests. The preforms for the composite structures are integrally 3-D braided by a new ‘n-step’ braiding process in an optimum configuration according to the loads. The integral fibre reinforcement guarantees high structural integrity with locally restricted damage area and high after-crash performance. An additional feature is the high mass-specific energy absorption owing to the complex, exactly controllable failure modes in the 3-D fibre structure.
