Abstract
THE NEED TO REDUCE LABOR EXPENSES FOR THE PRODUCTION OF ADVANCED COMPOSITE PREFORMS HAS BEEN A MAJOR ISSUE IN THE COMPOSITE COMMUNITY. THE ABILITY TO WEAVE ANGULAR YARNS INTEGRALLY, WITH STANDARD WARP (0 DEGREE) AND FILLING (90 DEGREE) YARNS WOULD BE AN ASSET TO THE COMPOSITE COMMUNITY. CURRENTLY, LABOR INTENSIVE OFF-AXIS HAND LAY-UPS ARE USED TO PRODUCE MULTIANGULAR PREFORMS. THIS PROGRAM WILL DEVELOP A CONCEPT TO PRODUCE COMPOSITE PREFORMS WITH OFF-AXIS FIBERS. IN ADDITION, THE CONCEPT PROPOSED HERE WILL NOT CRIMP OR IMPALE FIBERS.
