|Summary||This paper discloses a novel method and apparatus for integrally weaving a dense sheet of parallel ±45° fibre on the surface of woven structures. The additional ±45° fibre has been incorporated onto a range of compound three-dimensional structures by means of a new device, which was developed for use with conventional weaving looms. The additional fibre forms a contiguous plane of ±45° fibre, while the configuration of the underlying structure remains substantially undisturbed. Three-dimensional multiaxial structures have been successfully produced using high performance fibres including carbon and glass, which require special processing considerations.
