Title:Tensile strength of off axis unidirectional composites
Author(s):Lauraitis, Kristina
Subject(s):Tensile Strength
Off-axis Unidirectional Composites
Abstract:From the Introduction: The many outstanding features of high performance fibrous composites have made them attractive structural materials. Oriented fiber reinforcement offers a strengthened and stiffened material having a high strength-to-weight ratio. Additional advantages of fibrous composites may include improved behavior at abnormal temperatures, the production of structural forms otherwise inconvenient or impossible and controlled anisotropy in physical properties.
