  • Patent number: 10272637
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides an iterative method for draping fiber plies to produce a preform for a composite wall with an organic matrix. The method comprises the sequential stacking of woven fiber plies on a template. The plies are covered with reference markings, particularly with tracer threads forming a grid pattern, the positions of the threads being indicated by means of illuminated marks projected by a laser. The reference markings of the plies are moved in turn until they coincide with their corresponding marks, thereby ensuring the correct positioning of the corresponding ply. The stack contains plies with threads orientated at ?45°/+45° and at 0°/90°. The illuminated marks change with each type of ply so as to project dedicated indications onto the plies. The present disclosure also provides a draping installation and a composite wall of a casing of an axial turbine engine, or of a motor vehicle structure.
