Abstract
Fiber-reinforced flexible composites are extensively used for different kinds of applications, for example, tubes, drive belts, tires, and coated fabrics. Typical for these materials are matrix materials allowing large strain deformation and reinforcement structures allowing bending. Apart from the tensile strength and limited bending stiffness, damage resistance and ductile-brittle transition characteristics are discussed. The tensile strength usually follows the rule of mixture. The mode of fracture and damage resistance, however, strongly depend on penetration of the matrix into the fiber bundles, textile structure, and internal friction. Models for the work of fracture and the ductile-to-brittle fracture transition are discussed.
