Research on Fabricating Technology of Three Dimensional Integrated Braided Composite I Beam
In this paper the fabricating technology of three dimensional (3D) integrated braided composite I beam is researched, including: braiding technology of 3D braided I beam preform, the orientation of fiber-tow in the I beam preform, the optimizing of process parameters of resin transfer molding (RTM) for 3D braided composite I beam, and the design of mould for consolidation of composite I beam. The quality of 3D braided composites is good analyzed by ultrasonic A-scan, void content calculation and microscope observation. The research result will provide a good way for designing and fabricating high performance 3D integrated braided composite components with irregular cross section.
