Abstract
A STUDY IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP GUIDELINES FOR THE EXTENSION OF THE TECHNOLOGY OF WEAVING TRIAXIAL FABRICS TO PROVIDE WOVEN STRUCTURES HAVING THROUGH-THE-THICKNESS-RUNNING YARNS IN ADDITION TO IN-PLANE TRIAXIAL CONSTRUCTIONS. RELATED WORKS ARE CITED TO SHOW THAT SUCH WOVEN STRUCTTURES USED AS REINFORCEMENTS FOR COMPOSITE HAVE POTENTIALSFOR IMPROVED BOLTED JOINTS, IMPROVED RESISTANCE TO INTERLAMINAR STRESSES; AND GREATER FRACTURE TOUGHNESS, - AS WELL AS ISOTROPY IN INDIVIDUAL PLIES. THE OBJECTIVE IS THE ELIMINATION OF THE SEPARA TION OR DELAMINATION MODE OF FAILURE TO WHICH CONVENTIONAL COMPOSITE LAMINATES ARE SUBJECT, WITH MINIMAL REDUCTION IN IN-PLANE PROPERTIES.
