Abstract

The mechanical response of weft knitted carbon (CF) and glass fibre (GF) fabric-reinforced thermoplastic composites with polyetheretherketone (PEEK) and polyethyleneterephthalate (PET) was studied by dynamic-mechanical thermal analysis (DMTA) and static tensile tests. A strong anisotropy was observed in both stiffness and strength when the specimens were loaded in wale (stronger) and course direction (weaker) of the knit, respectively. The anisotropy factor was estimated by considering the relation of the loop numbers in course and wale direction, that resulted in good agreement with the experimental data.
