The images of FEM simulation below provide the cases when cross ply and rotation movements are the best (Fig.
It was found out that the best result of cross ply movement was obtained in model 3 (table 5) with coefficient 0.
Recently, a study based on J-integral (26) was performed using FEM to measure fracture toughness of cross ply laminates, but also did not consider multidirectional ones.
The cross ply process was utilized to seal the layers into place.
Patents were filed late in 1990 for the unidirectional cross ply processing machinery.
Only the car tyre market has moved to radial tyres (95%) but in all other categories, cross ply tyres are still preferred.
