Uniaxial composites

  • #1
Hi all,

I am hoping this is in the correct section and also is a very easy question for someone to answer. I have been asked to complete a study on the properties of Uniaxial composites when comparing them to metals and plastics however i am not sure what type of composite this relates to and cant find anything anywhere explaining Uniaxial composites.

Can anyone help me out with this?

Thanks for the post! Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

Sorry... no help from me. I've never heard the term "uniaxial". All that I can think of, from the standpoint of linguistics only, is that maybe it has something to do with all fibres or polymer chains or whatever of the blend being aligned in the same orientation. That's probably wrong, but it's the only thing that the term brings to mind.

Danger is right on target. A uniaxial composite is one in which all the reinforcement is aligned in the same direction.
