Abstract

US Engineers have developed a computer controlled manufacturing process for carbon fibre grids. The process uses a computer controlled machine to weave the grids from continuous bundles of carbon fibre. The bundles are 0.32 cm wide and are impregnated with liquid polymer resins. A computer-based analytical method that simulates the grid's behaviour has also been developed. This is used to tailor the grid's strength and stiffness for use in specific new constructions, or for creating strengthening materials to reinforce damaged structures.
