he thesis introduces novel techniques to study the effects of moulding materials including different fabric architecture on the strength of pultruded adhesive joints and how to improve it. The overall objectives are (i) to devise laboratory techniques which mimic the pultrusion moulding process using glass fabric and vinyl ester resin and other moulding materials, (ii) to optimise the moulding materials and maximise the level of adhesion of the pultrusion and hence to improve the structural efficiency of the joints and (iii) to determine critical stresses and failure initiation through thickness of the composite laminate using multi-scale modeling.
