size: 11pt;">manufacturing methods is of great interest. Sheet forming of thermoset
size: 11pt;">prepreg, also known as hot drape forming, has been a promising manufacturing
size: 11pt;">method for decades. An automatic tape layer (ATL) can be used to perform the
size: 11pt;">lay-up in an efficient way. The flatly stacked unidirectional prepreg forms a
