In the presented work, an experimental investigation has been performed to characterize the strain rate dependency of unidirectional carbon fiber reinforced polyamide-6 composite for longitudinal compression loading. An end-loaded compression specimen geometry, suitable for contactless optical strain measurement via digital image correlation and dynamic loading in a split-Hopkinson pressure bar, was developed. For the dynamic experiments at a constant strain rate of 100 s −1 a modified version o...

This work studied the effects of the addition of Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNT) to a PLLA matrix. Two distinct methods of preparation were employed: a combination of a solvent/ mechanical stirring and a combination of a solvent/high energy sonication. The mechanical properties of the nanocomposites were determined by nanoindentation and by the Vickers hardness test. Thermal properties of the nanocomposites (Tg, Tc, Tm and crystallinity degree) were determined by DSC. The tribological prope...

In this study, the thermal, dynamic-mechanical and tribological behavior of nanocomposites of a photocurable epoxy-acrylate resin and multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) are investigated. A route consisting of a combination of sonication, mechanical and magnetic stirring is used to disperse 0.25-0.75 wt. (%) MWCNT into the resin. Two photocuring cycles using 12 hours and 24 hours of UV-A radiation are studied. The storage modulus, the loss modulus and the tan delta are obtained by dynamic mecha...

Abstract Glass-fiber reinforced polypropylene (PP) and polybutene-1 (PB-1) materials were investigated in a high-speed tensile test. The glass-fiber content of the materials and the strain rate were varied in the range between 0 and 40 wt.-% and 0.007 and 174 s −1 , respectively. The aim of the investigations was to show in which way the glass-fiber content, and especially the strain rate, influence the material behavior, in this case the stress–strain behavior, the tensile strength and the frac...

This paper is a detailed review of the strain rate dependence of some mechanical properties of polymer composite materials. An attempt is made to present and summarize much of the published work relating to the effect of strain rate studies done in the past on the tensile, shear, compressive, and flexural properties of composite materials to better understand the strain rate effects on these mechanical properties of fiber-reinforced polymer composite materials. © 2004 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Abstract The rate-dependent behavior of AS4/PEEK (APC-2) thermoplastic composite has been characterized over a wide strain rate range (10 × 10 −6 to 1000s −1 ). The low to moderate strain rate experiments were conducted with a servo-hydraulic testing machine, while the high strain rate experiments were conducted with a Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar. Two rate-dependent models are introduced to model the material response. Both models are developed by using a one-parameter plastic potential functio...
