A Berkeley-based advanced manufacturing company has developed the first technology of its kind to enable the production of high-performance continuous fiber-reinforced composites at scale. In this session, CEO Riley Reese will discuss the advantages of novel orthotropic material properties (i.e., steering carbon fibers along the principal stress direction) and the performance benefits in terms of specific stiffness, specific strength, and energy return against conventional quasi-isotropic composites and metals. The presentation will include real-world application examples in detail, such as soldier boots and seat structures.
