Abstract

In this study, we propose a new compression-molding approach using a sheet-like molding material made by regularly and unidirectionally arrayed chopped strands (UACS). UACS achieves both excellent flowablity during molding and distinguished mechanical properties comparable to continuous fiber composites.
