Abstract
An experimental investigation of the resistance welding of PPS/carbon fiber is presented in this manuscript. Currently, one of the main problems of the structural polymer composites consists in its effective integration of the components. The electrical resistance welding has been considered as one of the promising techniques for bonding composites, because it is a quick process with easy surface preparation. To improve the process to welding poly-(phenylene sulfide) (PPS) reinforced with carbon fiber laminates, it was used a full factorial design (23). Considering the factors pressure, electrical current and time, the more appropriate conditions for welding were evaluated based on a criterion of maximum lap shear strength, according to ASTM D1002-10. A comparison between welded and non-welded specimens in terms of analysis dynamic mechanical (DMA), thermomechanical analysis (TMA) and vibration tests was performed. It was demonstrated that large-scale DMA presented a similar results but according to TMA and vibration test were observed that welded specimens presented different results when compared to non-welded laminates, due probably to the presence of metallic heating element.

Abstract The objective of this study is to understand the influence of temperature and moisture on the lap shear strength (LSS) of carbon fibre/polyphenylene sulfide (CF/PPS) resistance-welded joints. The welded joints are conditioned at various levels of temperature and humidity and tested at temperatures ranging from 21°C to 150°C. Temperature is shown to have an effect on the LSS with a reduction of 26% at 82°C and 61% at 150°C (around 60°C above the PPS Tg), relative to room temperature. Moi...

Abstract Resistance welding of thermoplastic composites involves applying an electric current to a heating element, usually a stainless-steel (SS) mesh, which heats up by Joule effect, melts the surrounding polymer matrix and remains at the joint interface following the welding operation. In this study, the adhesion between a thermoplastic matrix, i.e., polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), and the SS mesh heating element is evaluated and improved through the application of surface coatings on the SS. Th...

Abstract This work shows a fractographic study on fracture surfaces of welded joints by electrical resistance of thermoplastic composites based on polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) reinforced with continuous carbon fiber (CF), evaluated after lap shear loading. The fracture surfaces were generated with the complete breakdown of the specimens under the same conditions used in the mechanical test. The fractographic aspects of fracture surfaces were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). SEM ana...

In this work, multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) were dispersed in water with the assistance of water based surfactant and then sonicated in order to obtain a very well dispersed solution. The suspension was filtrate under vaccum conditions, generating a thin film called buckypapers (BP). Poly (phenylene sulphide) (PPS) reinforced carbon fiber (CF) and PPS reinforced CF/BP composites were manufactured through hot compression molding technique. Subsequently the samples were exposed to extreme hum...
