Elastic Analysis of Woven Fabric Laminates: Part II. Mixed Composites



Mixed composites are formed by the combination of unidirectional tapes and woven fabrics. In this paper, a method is presented for predicting the elastic properties of mixed composites. The elastic properties of the mixed composites are compared with those of equivalent unidirectional composites. It was found that, along with impact and postimpact properties, mixed composites can also offer higher elastic properties than equivalent unidirectional composites.
