In this paper, new designs of unidirectionally arrayed chopped strands (UACS) are proposed to improve the strength and material symmetry of existing UACS laminates by introducing discontinuous angled slits into prepreg of continuous carbon-fiber/epoxy. Two slit patterns, namely, staggered discontinuous angled slit pattern and discontinuous bi-angled slit pattern, are designed. Quasi-isotropic laminates of [45/0/-45/90]2S stacked by UACS prepregs with new slit patterns are fabricated by using an autoclave. Tensile tests of these laminates are conducted. Hybrid laminates [90/0/90] with two unidirectional glass-fiber/epoxy plies as 90-degree plies and one UACS ply as 0-degree ply are fabricated for flowabilty test by using hot pressing. Existing UACS laminates with continuous angled slits and conventional laminate without slit are also fabricated and tested for a comparison. Experimental results reveal that new designed UACS laminates have higher strength and better flowability than existing UACS laminate.
