Study on the Compressive Properties of Three Dimensional Quasi-Isotropic Braided Composites
Based on the principle and fabricating process of Quasi-Isotropic braided composites, the regular pattern of movement of each yarn is analyzed and the inner unit cell model is established in this paper. The real Quasi-Isotropic braiding structure is built using 3D paint software named UG NX4.0. Compressive mechanical properties of 3D Quasi-Isotropic braided composites are also discussed. It is found that the load–deflection curve of the Quasi-isotropic braided composites displays a relatively linear behavior, behaving mostly as the characteristics of shear.
