In order to form long fiber-reinforced plastic sheets into angled parts, a new process called the Laminate-Bending Process was recently developed. The process consists of preforming a prepreg into semi-cured stable shapes having various sharp bending radii. followed by laminating the preforms into a fully cured thick angle product having high strength and rigidity. A sharp 90"V-angled product of five lay-ups of preform was test fabricated under various preforming and laminating conditions by using a continuou…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
