Abstract: Composite materials has found itself a huge role in the aircraft industry. Though composite comes with a lot of advantages it has its own drawbacks. One such drawback in composite laminates is the low interlaminar strength which affects the performance of composites. In this paper we try to gain knowledge about the various techniques that have been developed over the years to overcome this drawback, so that the strength of composites can be improved which makes them to be used at critical places in aircraft also. Efforts have been made to study the principle behind techniques like z-pinning, 2D and 3D woven composites, polymer additive manufacturing and addition of carbon nano- tubes.
Keywords: Z-Pinning, Polymer Additive Manufacturing, Woven Composites, Carbon Nano-Tubes.
Scope of the Article: Manufacturing Processes
