Abstract
MAGNAWEAVE FABRICATES MULTIDIMENSIONALLY REINFORCED PERFORMS FOR COMPOSITES. TO DATE, THE TECHNOLOGY HAS ATTACKED THE PROBLEM OF WEAVING SPECIFIC SPECIFIC SHAPES. IT HAS SUCCEEDED. THE PROJECT WILL ADDRESS THE POTENTIAL OF THE BASIC MAGNAWEAVE PROCESS TO BE AMENDED AND EXTENDED TO OPTIMIZE PERFORMANCE IN SUCH AREAS AS FRACTURE TOUGHNESS, INTERLAMINAR SHEAR STRENGTH, AND WEAVE ISOTROPY. DATA FROM EARLIER PROGRAMS SUGGEST SUCH IMPROVEMENTS SHOULD BE POSSIBLE "TRANSVERSE" AND "THIRD DIMENSIONAL" LAYINS SHOULD ENHANCE MAGNAWEAVE CAPABILITIES DRAMATICALLY; THE "NO HOLE" HOLE APPEARS TO BE A BREAKTHROUGH IN ATTACHMENT INTEGRITY. BUILDING ON THE BASIC TECHNOLOGY SHOULD PROVIDE THE DEFENSE COMMUNITY WITH AN EXCEPTIONALLY VERSATILE AND CAPABLE TOOL.
