Abstract
Edge delamination is frequently observed in carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) laminates after machining, due to the low fracture toughness of the resin interfaces between carbon fiber plies. In this study, the effects of incorporating tough aramid fibers into the brittle CFRP system are quantified by measuring the residual properties of bolted CFRP. By adding short-aramid-fiber interleaves in CFRP laminates, the residual tensile strength have been substantially increased by 14 % for twill-weave laminates and 45 % for unidirectional laminates respectively. Moreover, tensile failure was observed as the major mode of toughened laminates, in contrast to shear failure of plain laminates. The qualitative FEM results agreed well with the experimental results that edge delamination would cause relatively higher shear stress and therefore alter the failure mode from tensile failure to shear failure.

Dispersion and shape of nanoparticles, as well as interfacial conditions, add significantly to difficulties in composite manufacture. In the work reported here, an innovative method of recycling composites using out-of-date prepreg was investigated in which the carbon nanotube (CNT) on the prepreg was optimally coated. Nanocomposites utilizing the out-of-date prepreg were coated with CNT and fabricated by a sheet molding method. CNT nanofillers were observed to be uniformly dispersed on epoxy pr...

Over the last decade, the use of polymeric composite material has increased considerably, and as a result, machinability of such material has also increased. The main aim of this work is to emphasize on the conventional and unconventional machining of composite materials, more specifically on drilling of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer and glass fiber-reinforced polymer. Additional concentration on tool materials and geometry, roughness of drill surface, thrust force and delamination at entry an...

Experimental observations have shown that carbon nanotubes (CNTs)/Al nanocomposites with high level ordered nanolaminates exhibit greatly improved plasticity. The increased plasticity is mainly attributed to enhanced dislocation storage capability and two-dimensional alignment of the reinforcement. Here a theoretical model is proposed with interactions between aligned CNTs and grain boundary dislocations emitted from a crack tip taken into consideration to investigate crack blunting and fracture...

Abstract The drilling-induced delamination and thermal damage of carbon fiber reinforced epoxy composite materials are serious problems especially for high value components of the aviation industry. To suppress the delamination and drilling ablation, an innovative approach was employed in this study. The multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were introduced to the matrix resin to improve the interlaminar strength and thermal conductivity. The as-prepared composite was processed by microwave curi...

Interfacial failure problem of composite laminates was experimentally studied to know the dependence of interlaminar fracture resistance on various conditions as well as conditions of migration of the delamination into lamina to understand three-dimensional complex damage growths. A test method was proposed to realize a stable damage growth without influence of free edge under varying shear fracture mode in laminated composites. We could numerically evaluate critical energy release rate (ERR) fo...

Abstract Carbon-fiber epoxy composites were bonded to four different types of aluminum substrates with different surface roughness and finish. The four aluminum substrates considered in this study have the following surface conditions: two solid aluminum substrates polished with two different grades of sandpapers, and two porous aluminum foams with two different as-received surface conditions, one with a patterned surface finish and one with rough pore structures. Moreover, the thin epoxy adhesi...

Carbon Fiber-Reinforced by Plastic (CFRP) is now commonly used in the aircraft industry. The main challenge is to manufacture this difficult-to-cut work material, considering its quality criteria and economical aspects. Drilling is the main machining operation required for the assembly of the aircraft structure. In this paper, results are presented and discussed regarding exit delamination studied at a local scale. Because of the anisotropic properties of CFRP, the fiber cutting modes change wit...

Delamination is one of the main defects observed from the drilling of composite materials, and can be an important limiting factor for the use of composite materials. In this study, the delamination area factor for GFRP (Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic) drilling was proposed to quantify the practical delamination zone via digital imaging of the damage zone around the hole and by calculating the damage zone by pixel. From the tests, it was concluded that a higher drill feed rate reduced the delami...

Nylon 6,6 nanofibers were interleaved in the mid-plane of glass fiber/epoxy matrix composite laminates for Mode I and II fracture mechanic tests. The present study investigates the effect of the nanofibers on the laminates' mechanical response. Results showed that Nylon 6,6 nanofibers improved specimen's fracture mechanic behavior: the initial energy release rates GIC and GIIC increased 62% and 109%, respectively, when nanofibrous interlayer was used. Scanning electron microscope micrographs sho...

An extensive experimental program was carried out to investigate and understand the sequence of damage development throughout the life of open-hole composite laminates loaded in tension-tension fatigue. Quasiisotropic carbon/epoxy laminates, with stacking sequence [45 2 /90 2 /-45 2 /0 2 ] S , [45/90/-45/0] 2S and [45/90/-45/0] 4S were examined. These were selected on the basis that under quasi-static loading the [45 2 /90 2 /-45 2 /0 2 ] S configuration exhibited a delamination dominated mode o...

Edge trimming is commonly used to bring the CFRP components to right dimension and shape in aerospace industries. However, various forms of undesirable machining damage occur frequently which will significantly decrease the material performance of CFRP. The damage is difficult to predict and control due to the complicated changing laws, causing unsatisfactory machining quality of CFRP components. Since the most of damage has the same essence: the fiber-matrix interface cracks, this study aims to...

Abstract Inherent weak interfaces exist in large plate and shell composites made from carbon fibre pre-pregs and in any laminar structures bonded by epoxy adhesives due to absence of Z-directional toughening. In-situ Z-directional movements of short and flexible fibres from ultra-thin un-bonded non-woven Aramid veils can potentially compensate for the inherent structural weakness. Incorporations of nano-fillers, carbon nano-tubes (CNT) and graphene can enhance the toughness of epoxy matrix, but ...
