Abstract This paper deals with the effect of temperature (room and low temperatures) on the tensile properties at high strain rates of CFRP laminates. Dynamic tests were performed on different carbon/epoxy laminates configurations: unidirectional, [0] 10 and [90] 10 , and quasi-isotropic [±45/0/90] S . All these tests were carried out at two temperatures: 20 and −60 °C. Validation of Hopkinson bar theory using one-dimensional wave propagation theory was performed by analysing the effect of low temperature on elastic wave propagation along the bars of the experimental device, and the subsequent wave dispersion phenomena. The value of the strain on the specimen derived from the signals recorded at the bar gauges was compared with that obtained from a gauge glued on the specimen. All the experimental results of the response of CFRPs at high strain rates and low temperature are analysed and discussed.

Abstract A constitutive model for characterizing high strain rate response of polymeric composites was developed using off-axis composite specimens. The difference in the results of coupon and block specimens was experimentally demonstrated and discussed. Off-axis block specimens were tested in compression at three different strain rates, 10−4/s, 10−2/s, and 1/s. Based on these experimental data, a viscoplasticity model was established to describe the nonlinear rate dependent behavior. This visc...

The strain rate dependent behavior of IM7/977-2 carbon/epoxy matrix composite in tension is studied by testing the resin and various laminate configurations at different strain rates. Tensile tests have been conducted with a hydraulic machine at quasi-static strain rates of approximately 10 � 5 s � 1 and intermediate strain rates of about 1 s � 1 . Tensile high strain rate tests have been conducted with the tensile split Hopkinson bar technique at strain rates of approximately 400–600 s � 1 . Sp...

A new experimental technique is developed to determine the onset and evolution of delamination in fiber‐reinforced composites. The configuration uses a split‐Hopkinson bar for low‐velocity impact loading and two Polytec laser vibrometer systems for real‐time monitoring of the initiation and progression of delamination. The experiment allows the histories of load, displacement, and velocity of impacted specimens to be recorded and analyzed. Numerical simulations are conducted using a cohesive fin...

Thick panel glass/polymer composites are being considered as a structural component in ballistic armor. A new experimental technique has been developed to perform dynamic bi-axial testing on laminate composites. In-plane ultimate compressive strength of the composite is compared for various combinations of bi-axial stress and strain rate. Evolution of the damage in the composite and subsequent kink-band formation is studied by the use of high-speed photography and electron microscopy.

Abstract The present investigation concentrates on the influence of low temperature and moisture on the dynamic moduli of thick S2-glass composite beams. By supporting the beam sample in a free–free configuration, its natural frequencies were obtained through impact testing. Frequency dependence on the hydrothermal conditions was disclosed by testing the sample at different temperatures and with different moisture contents. Based on the frequency measurements, a method was developed to predict t...

Abstract The results of an investigation into the effect of absorbed moisture on the low temperature transitions of several polymer composite systems are reported. The longitudinal shear modulus and loss factor were measured over a range of temperature, from −150 to +20°C, both before and after conditioning in a hot, wet environment. In all cases, the presence of absorbed water had a plasticising effect, lowering the temperature at which the transition took place and increasing the peak loss fac...

Strain rate sensitivities of Graphite/Epoxy and Graphite/Peek laminate composites are investigated by measuring their stress-strain response at strain rates of 0.001/s, 0.1/s, and 400/s. Tension specimens of the composite laminates are fabricated in a dog-bone shape. Stress-strain data at quasi-static rates of 0.001/s and 0.1/s are obtained using a servohydraulic test system. High strain rate data are produced with a Direct Tension Split Hopkinson Bar (DTSHB). A tensile stress pulse is generated...

Abstract Composite materials exhibit excellent mechanical properties over metallic materials and hence are increasingly considered for high technology applications. In many practical situations, the structures are subjected to loading at very high strain rates. Material and structural response vary significantly under such loading as compared to static loading. A structure that is expected to perform under dynamic loading conditions, if designed with the static properties, might be too conservat...
Abstract A technique has been developed for using high-speed photography to study the continuous formation of regions of localised shear in thin-walled tubular specimens of very ductile Remco iron tested in a torsional split Hopkinson pressure bar apparatus at nominal strain rates of ∼3000 s −1 . A fibre-optic flash unit provides adequate illumination at framing rates up to 200 000 s −1 .

Abstract Three types of test, i.e. tension, compression and in-plane shear, have been carried out to measure the in-plane mechanical properties of woven CFRP T300/914 laminates at three different strain rates. Specimens were waisted symmetrically in the thickness direction. Difficulties presented in testing specimens with 90° reinforcement in compression and [±45] in tension at high strain rate are discussed. To obtain the modulus in [90] compression and in [±45] tension at high strain rate, spe...

Abstract Aiming to achieve the targets of reduction of fuel consumption and emissions, automotive manufacturers are increasingly using lightweight materials in the vehicle structures, namely, carbon fibre composites and aluminium alloys. The construction techniques for vehicle structures using this type of materials differ greatly from the techniques used for the most commonly used steel bodies, with adhesive bonding being extensively used due to its capability to bond dissimilar materials.

Abstract The mechanical properties of long unidirectional (UD) and crossply (CR) carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRPs) were investigated at a low temperature (−196 °C). The CFRPs were fabricated from 60 vol.% carbon fiber and epoxy resin. The bending strength of the UD-CFRP was approximately twice that of the CR-CFRP. The high strength of the UD-CFRP was directly attributed to the amount of carbon fiber oriented along the loading direction: 60% for UD-CFRP compared with 30% for CR-CFRP. The l...

Abstract Carbon fiber composites are now common in the aerospace industry because of their high specific stiffness and strength. They are ideal for decreasing the weight of structures, but it is well-known that they can suffer delamination and failure under relatively mild impact loads. In particular, under ballistic impact, carbon fiber composites underperform compared to other materials like S-2 glass, Kevlar®, or polyethylene composites. Hence, it is difficult to find in the literature a comp...

Abstract This paper investigates the strain rate sensitivity of laminated composites made of plies of unidirectional basalt fibres and epoxy resin. We consider laminates with quasi-isotropic [0∘,−45∘,+45∘,90∘]s and orthogonal [+45∘,−45∘]4 layup. A Split-Hopkinson Tension Bar is used to generate accurate stress/strain data at elevated rates of strain of ≈3 × 102/s. Moderate strain rate effects are observed with strength increase of ≈3.5% per decade of increased loading rate for both laminate type...

Increased application of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites to resist blast loadings necessitated investigating their dynamic behavior. It requires characterization of the CFRP laminates at high strain rates using split Hopkinson pressure bar or comparable device. In this investigation, tensile properties of the CFRP laminates subjected to high strain rates are studied experimentally and numerically. Experimental evaluation of tensile properties of the CFRP laminates using the Hop...
