Abstract

A technique is described which was used to produce realistic geometric models of the three-dimensional yarn architecture within composites made from multilayer woven preforms. Micrographs of the composite sections in the warp and weft directions were digitised and MicroStation™ CAD software was used to construct a three-dimensional geometric model for two architectures: Layer Interlock and Layer Interlock with Offset Binder. Visualisations of these models clearly d
