Recent Developments in 3D-Knittings for Sandwich Panels
In this paper, the concept and production of 3D-knitted fabrics and composites is explained. So far, most effort has been spent on the processing of the fabric [ 1] into a composite. Finally, a few preliminary results are shown and some future applications are mentioned.
