Abstract The damage mechanisms and load redistribution taking place under high temperature (350°C), high cycle fatigue (HCF) of TC17 titanium alloy/unidirectional SiC fibre composites have been investigated in situ using synchrotron X-ray computed tomography (CT) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) under two stress amplitudes. The three-dimensional morphology of the fatigue crack and fibre fractures has been mapped by CT. At low stress amplitude, stable growth occurs with matrix cracking deflecting by 5...

The damage mechanisms and load redistribution of high strength TC17 titanium alloy/unidirectional SiC fibre composite (fibre diameter = 100 \mu) under high temperature (350 °C) fatigue cycling have been investigated in situ using synchrotron X-ray computed tomography (CT) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) for high cycle fatigue (HCF) under different stress amplitudes. The three-dimensional morphology of the crack and fibre fractures has been mapped by CT. During stable growth, matrix cracking domin...

Abstract The torsional performance of bi-axially braided carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) tubes as a function of braid architecture is investigated. It is found that for a given braid pattern, the 45° braided CFRP tubes have higher shear moduli and lower shear strength than the 35° braids. In general, 2/2 (regular) braided CFRP tubes exhibit both higher shear strength and higher shear modulus than 1/1 (diamond) braids. However, beyond the peak load, the shear strength of 2/2 braided CFRPs ...

Abstract Here we present the first real-time three dimension (3D) observations of damage evolution in a composite tube under torsion. An in-situ torsion test of 1/1 45° (diamond) braided carbon fibre-epoxy circular composite tube was performed on a loading rig and the damage process was characterised by synchrotron X-ray computed tomography (CT). A number of damage modes and their damage sequence has been identified and monitored globally and in more detail within a representative region of inte...

Abstract Kink-band nucleation and propagation has been monitored over time in three dimensions (3D) by time-lapse X-ray computed tomography (CT) in the compressive zone of a blunt notched unidirectional (UD) T800 carbon fibre/epoxy composite under in situ four-point bending (FPB). The kink bands that develop from micro-buckling are classified into two types, namely type 1 and type 2 by analogy with Euler buckling. Type 1 (shear) kink bands accommodate a lateral displacement of the fibres either ...

Understanding the fatigue damage mechanisms in composite materials is of great importance in the wind turbine industry because of the very large number of loading cycles rotor blades undergo during their service life. In this paper, the fatigue damage mechanisms of a non-crimp unidirectional (UD) glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) used in wind turbine blades are characterised by time-lapse ex-situ helical X-ray computed tomography (CT) at different stages through its fatigue life. Our observa...

Abstract The sudden compressive failure of unidirectional (UD) fibre reinforced composites at loads well below their tensile strengths is a cause of practical concern. In this respect and more generally, analytical and numerical models that describe composite behaviour have been hard to verify due to a lack of experimental observation, particularly in 3D. The aim of this paper is to combine fast in-situ X-ray computed tomography (CT) with advanced image analysis to capture the changes in fibre o...
