1 Examples of woven 3D fabrics. 1 illustrates various forms of 3D woven fabrics, solid with uniform thickness, solid shaped, hollow, multifaceted and domed. Many more complicated forms, such as T or I beams, can be made. Weaving can be regarded as the mainstream route to 3D composite preforms. The design of 3D weaves is more complicated than for 2D weaves, but a program, Weave Engineer, based on mathematical principles by Chen et al. (1996), is available from TexEng Software Ltd. It is easy to use in a series of steps.

2 (a and b) Weave design and structure for orthogonal interlock. (c) Hollow structure. 3 (a) Braiding over a mandrel. (b) Four-step solid braid. (c) Two-step braiding. 4 (a) 3D tubular braid with components of yarn paths in axial, circumferential and radial directions. (b) Design for an I-beam. From left to right: yarn paths; black yarn path following horn gears; horn gears. From Hamada (2012). Developments by Professor Hamada (2012) at Kyoto University have been commercialised. 4(a) shows Hamada’s structure of a tubular braid with binder yarns going through several layers of thickness.
