Fibre Architecture: Availability, pros and cons, and selection for my application
October 27, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT
Selecting the form of fibre, often referred to as the fibre architecture is a critical decision during the development process. Fibre architecture has a significant effect on cost, processability, defect generation, design/geometry limitations, damage tolerance, and other outcomes of a composite part.
Individual fibres are grouped into bundles of thousands of fibres called tows. These tows then go through a secondary process to create a material form that is then used to produce a composite part. This fibre architecture may be in the form of a unidirectional fabric, woven fabric, non-crimp fabric, braided tube/sleeve or mat, among others.
In this webinar, we will discuss common types of fibre architecture, their pros and cons, suitability to specific processes, and provide insight on how to select a fibre architecture for your application.
This presentation is part of the ongoing CKN webinar series. Content discussed in the webinar is linked to the Knowledge in Practice Centre, allowing users to access this and other content in a consistent and coherent manner.
