Hi Mahzad Sadati,

I don't clearly understand your question here, because as far as I understand, you want to have fiber direction pointing out of the surface and if you think about it practically, the fibers can't be laid in such a way by any hand layup method, nor can we use pre-pregs for the the same. Because pre-pregs have a specific thickness (which is not much), you will need to cut the pre-pregs at the very end to apply the fibers as you want to, thus creating many layers along the surface of the mold which need to be glued together, making the composite weak.

So, practically speaking I don't see how that would help in creating a composite. 

Can you please elaborate more on the analysis you are performing and why you need such a setup of fiber points out of the surface?
