Abstract

Continuous fiber such as carbon fiber, aramid fiber and glass fiber, have been accepted as a substitute for conventional steel reinforcement because of its good characteristics: high strength, lightness, anti-corrosiveness, anti-magnetism and flexibility. At the same time continuous fibers also show some major drawbacks when compared with steel. This article introduces new directions for continuous fiber to overcome its drawbacks and to utilize its unused advantage. The new directions necessitate the development of new materials.
