Abstract :
[en] This research stems from the idea of introducing a fibre-network structure into composites aiming to enhance the stiffness and strength of the composites. A novel new type of composites reinforced by a tranversely isotropic fibre-network in which the fibres are devided into continuous segments and randomly distributed has been proposed and found to have improved elastic properties compared to other conventional fibre or particle composites mainly due to the introduction of cross linkers among the fibres. Combining with the effects of Poisson’s ratio of the constituent materials, the fibre network composite can exhibit extraordinary stiffness. A simplified analytical model has also been proposed for comparison with the numerical results, showing close prediction of the stiffness of the fibre-network composites. Moreover, as a plate structure, the thickness of the fibre network composite is adjustable and can be tailored according to the dimensions and mechanical properties as demanded in industry.
