Composite lattices provide great potential for the fabrication of ultra-light structures. In load bearing applications, the lattice transfers load through the structure with the aim of using as little material as possible. Manufacturing these lattice structures from long fibre composites composed of strong fibres set in a tough matrix, allows for further reduction in weight whilst retaining strength, as composite materials intrinsically possess very high strength to weight ratios. The foci of this research are (i) to explore the potential of fully composite lattice structures as high performance materials, breaking into as yet unchartered property space, (ii) devise manufacturing techniques to enable the fabrication of such structures, and (iii) determine the performance of these structures, particularly with regard to the micromechanical failure processes that occur.
