Investigation Of Fraying In Textile Reinforcements For Composites
MetadataShow full item record
This paper discusses the fraying of textile reinforcements upon preforming. The paper also introduces a method for quantifying the fraying characteristics of fabrics. Six different fabrics including three carbon fabrics and three glass fabrics were tested. Digital microscopy was also used for measuring the structures of the fabrics tested. The relation between the structures and fraying is discussed.
