It. Thermoset polymers such as epoxy and polyester are only pliable prior to being cured. When hardened, however, these epoxys are quite brittle. Bearing in mind that it is the fibres that do the work, not the matrix, brittleness does not really matter too much. Composites based on thermoset polymers are, with practice, reiatively easy to make up yourself, and many enthusiasts construct their own boats or boards. 8) prior to shaping into a suitable moulded form. If highly directional properties are required, the preform can be made up of stacks of weaves of parallel fibres.

We see that the best material is the carbon fibre composite, although (surprisingly) bamboo is not too far behind!

E refers to elastic modulus; (! refers to density of material; Gy refers to yield strength; F refers to applied load; r is radius, t is thickness, I is length, W refers to width of plate and T is the torsional force.

This movement is called pronation. 3 seconds, dependent of course on the speed of the runner. It is this rather short contact time that sports shoe design is all about! In this fraction of a second, the foot needs to be cushioned from damaging impact forces, guided and stabilized in the co mplex movement as the body's load is transferred from the he el to the ball of the foot, while (ideally) still returning most of the runner's input energy in the form of a rebounding energy when the sole is compressed (this is called 'energy return').
