Abstract : Studies are reported relating to the enhancement of understanding of the roles played by both binders and reinforcements in the attainment of advanced properties with fibrous composites. Previous analyses of properties and of efficiency of application are reviewed and extended. New analyses are developed for viscoelastic behavior and for three-dimensional reinforcement. Results of mechanical and photoelastic evaluations of transverse effectivenesses of filamentary reinforcement are presented.
