Final Report - MULTIWEAVE (Weaving machine for producing multiaxial fabric)

Project ID: 508125
Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

This is the final report of the MULTIWEAVE project, which aimed to investigate the feasibility of a multiaxial two-dimensional (2D) interlaced woven structure able to provide specified strengths in different directions and the development of its manufacturing process.
The report begins with an introduction to the current practices in fabric weaving technologies and then explains the characteristics of multilayer fabrics, along with the project's objectives. It later analyses the concept and development of the MULTIWEAVE prototype, describes the experiments conducted and the results obtained, and finally summarises the conclusions and the potential use and impact on the industry.
