Abstract

The behaviour of woven reinforcements has been extensively studied under conditions of bias extension, from both experimental and analytical viewpoints. The work reported here covers the measurement of the deformation characteristics of cross-plied unidirectional prepreg under conditions of bias extension. The results show that the global behaviour of cross-plied unidirectional prepreg can be predicted with reasonable accuracy by the pin-jointed-net assumption developed for woven cloth, but that the detailed behaviour is very different from that of woven cloth.
