Multi-directionally reinforced polymer matrix composites with unique architectural designs and no thickness limitations have been designed, developed, manufactured, and characterized for use in structural applications. Challenges to manufacturing these materials included implementation of single-step preform manufacture, managing thermal effects during densification, and process scale-up. Application of finite element analysis to translate raw materials and microstructural [...]
