© 2019, Springer Nature B.V. Needle-punched carbon/carbon composites (NP-C/Cs) are advanced materials widely used in aerospace applications. The needle-punching technique improves the integrality of carbon-fibre plies, however, it also introduces many defects, affecting the mechanical behavior of NP-C/Cs. A theoretical model of irregular beams is suggested to investigate the mechanical behavior of unidirectional needle-punched carbon/carbon composites. Stress distributions in punched and squeezed fibres and an effect of the needle-punching technology are assessed.
