these bows are usually traditional in nature, meaning they are often made out of a single piece of wood and lack more modern elements like sights. target recurve bows are the types you see in the olympics. they are usually made of a metal or carbon handle called a riser and have limbs made of composite wood, laminate or carbon materials.
laminate design allowables for toray t700g/#2510 unidirectional tape, t700s/#2510 plain weave fabric and 7781 finish 558/#2510 fiberglass fabric investigation of thick bondline adhesive joints effects of surface preparation on long-term durability of composite adhesive bonds
design considerations ¾the possibility of different fiber/matrix systems combined with the variables such as vf dictates the properties of a lamina. ¾then laminae can be placed at angles and at particular distances from the midplane of the laminate. ¾the material systems and the stacking sequence determine the stresses and strains in the
2.1determination of the design allowables from laminate level test data to obtain the design allowables used for composite material, both the 99% lower bound value and the a-basis 90% lower bound b-basis value at 95% confidence level are usually estimated by tests, using the building block approach). the a/b-basis values of laminates are obtained
read page 2 of the clad-what's the big whoop? discussion from the chowhound cookware food community. the first thing that comes to mind is the ability to laminate the layers or make the composite more malable for forming. so for such applications the quality and design of the pan is as important a factor as disk vs. clad construction
wezt yea i get the argument and you're right there are tons of variations on the v-fin form which is why i think that the heads overall design is what makes a gundam a "gundam". i still think that the overall head design, facemask (with/without vents), v-fin, defined eyes/outline, chin makes a suit identifiable as a gundam.
composite bonded joints analysis, data, and substantiation currently involved in composite material control, design allowables, repair design and analysis most experience is in failure in the first ply of the parent laminate (ref. navy, tsai, alper, barrett)

the laminate analysis program can be used to analyze any type of composite laminate subjected to in-plane loads and moments; and since a flat laminate has no fixed size, the analysis can be
