Braided Textile Composites for Aerospace

Science Innovations

The University of Manchester researchers have found that braided textile composites can have wide-ranging applications in aerospace and automotive drive shafts, sporting equipments such as hockey sticks. Braiding technology is used in the making of shoelaces but with the integration of robotics and advanced industrial systems, it can provide solutions for aerospace, automotive and energy sectors. The materials tested and examined in this work were braided carbon fibre composite tubes which are fabricated by braiding the fibre tows into a continuous interlaced helices. Recent advances show there is considerable scope for tailoring braided structure to suit specific service requirements.
