Abstract
A RESEARCH PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO DETERMINE WHETHER ECONOMICALLY ATTRACTIVE WEAVE CONSTRUCTIONS FOR THE REINFORCEMENT OF COMPOSITES HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR INHIBITING INTRALAMINAR TRANSVERSE FAILURE MODES. BOTH TRANSVERSE TENSION AND TRANSVERSE SHEAR FAILURE MODES WILL BE INVESTIGATED. SYSTEMATIC CORRELATIONS WILL BE ATTEMPTED WITH THE DENSITY OF INTERWEAVING (NUMBERS OF OVER-AND UNDERS PER UNIT AREA) OF THE REINFORCEMENT AND THE STRESS FOR INITIAL FAILURE. RESULTS WILL BE INTERPRETED BY RELATION TO COMPARABLE UNIDIRECTIONALLY REINFORCED LAMINATES.
