    Abstract

    Chopped-strand mats are often used as reinforcements for plastics. These chopped-strand mats consist of short glass fibers aligned parallel to the plane of layering but randomly oriented in the remaining directions. The gross mechanical behavior of a mat laminate may be characterized as transversely isotropic, that is, isotropic in its own plane but anisotropic with respect to an axis normal to it. This contrasts strongly with the gross orthotropic behavior of unidirectional laminates.
