Fiber Patch Placement in aerostructures: Investigation on material equivalency

Fiber Patch Placement in aerostructures: Investigation on material equivalency   Fiber Patch Placement is an advanced technology for automated fiber lay-up of geometrically complex composites and reinforcements. The individual orientation of each fiber patch along load paths opens new potential for applications in aerospace. However, since the Fiber Patch Placement laminates uses discontinuous fibers, the…
