This is my first foray into composites design and I am not sure what the industry practice would be for an acceptable splice dimension. From the limited information I have been able to find I believe a half inch long overlap splice will suffice and I must ensure that the splices are staggered through the thickness of the laminate. Will there be issues with the strength of the splice since I will be joining two layers of a double-bias fabric?
Any advice on the issue or recommendations for related reading materials will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
