Stretch-broken fiber preforms provide composites with post-formable characteristics that may reduce the costs of manufacturing complex shapes. Research into fiber preform production methods provides a fiber length and dispersion predictor that is then used to predict forming inputs required to excite tensile elongation of the preform under the influence of various boundary conditions common to sheet-based forming. Fiber behavior is discussed separately from the influence of liquid-phase matrix material. A comparison is made between model results and tensile response measurements of performs for polyarylate-matrix composites.
