Organic fibres as fillers of composite materials

Part of the Soviet Advanced Composites Technology Series book series (SACTS, volume 5)


The development of modern science and technology would have been difficult without the use of new types of high-performance materials. Ranking high among such materials are the high-strength and high-modulus organic fibres and fibrous materials based on them. Without these materials, it would be impossible to design the essential load-bearing elements of various structures such as ropes, radio-engineering equipment, tyres and reinforced plastic materials.
