A discrete fiber system such as a whisker or fiber mat has no material continuity; the orientation of the fibers is difficult to control precisely, although some aligned discrete fiber systems have recently been introduced. The structural integrity of... NASA Reference Publication - Page 73by United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Scientific and Technical Information Office - 1977Full view

...system, there is no material continuity and the orientation of fibers is difficult to control precisely. The structural integrity of the fibrous preform is...inter-fiber friction. The strength translation efficiency (ratio of composite strength to fiber strength) of the reinforcement system is quite low, less than...
