Abstract

Multiaxial fabrics developed on warp knitting machines are employed as reinforcement for composite materials due to their high stability and strength in different directions. However, in this type of structure, there is no interlacing of the reinforcing yarns, which may be a drawback for some uses, as delamination may ensue when the applied force system are out of the plane of the fabric. The current work discusses the progress of a new prototype of multiaxial weft knitting method, where reinforced yarns may be interlaced, if necessary, to overcome delamination problems.
