Abstract The composite-structure protective systems in head-on collision with objects are largely subjected to dynamic compression load along the thickness of composite structure. A typical plain weave aramid fabric reinforced polyamide (PA) composite, which is defined as one of single polymer composites (SPCs), is addressed in this paper. Firstly, in the process of sample preparation, processing characteristics of the single polymer composites are skillfully achieved and discussed using differe...

Abstract The high strain-rate induced failure characteristics in a carbon/Kevlar hybrid composite subjected to high strain-rate compressive loading were studied using a novel SHPB-AE coupled test. The tests were performed based on a split-Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) apparatus and an acoustic emission (AE) technique, respectively. Within the strain-rate range of 1002–1941 s −1 , a high strain-rate compressive test was conducted on the cylindrical carbon/Kevlar hybrid composite specimens located...

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...

Abstract The strain rate dependent mechanical behaviour was studied for the common out-of-autoclave aerospace textile composite 5-harness-satin carbon–epoxy. End-loaded 15 ° , 30 ° and 45 ° off-axis and 90 ° compression tests were carried out at three different strain rate levels ( 4 × 10 - 4 s - 1 , 200 s - 1 and 1000 s - 1 ) to determine the effect of strain rate for transverse compression and combined transverse compression/in-plane shear loading. The dynamic tests were carried out on a split...

The growing use of composite material has arisen from their high specific strength and stiffness, when compared to the more conventional materials, and the ability to tailor their structure to produce more aerodynamically efficient structural configurations. In this introductory chapter, it is argued that fibre reinforced polymers, especially carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP), can and will in the near future contribute more than 50% of the structural mass of an aircraft. Of course, afforda...

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...

Composite materials possess multiphase and by virtue of this have varied applications in the field of automotive, aerospace and defense industries. These applications demand high-impact loading at many instances, so the evaluation of the effect of impact loading on composite materials is important. Under high-strain loading, the composites mainly exhibit matrix properties but the variation arises when the amount of reinforcement is considered. The response of composite materials to high-strain l...

Abstract The compressive behavior of woven carbon/epoxy laminate composites is investigated under in-plane and out-of-plane loading. The Material Testing System (MTS) and the Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar (SHPB) are employed to test the quasi-static and high strain rate dynamic mechanical properties of the material, respectively. Dynamic compression properties are compared with those of static loading. It is observed that the failure strength varies with different fiber woven directions. The resu...

Abstract This study investigates the origin of the strain rate effect on the mechanical behavior of a discontinuous glass fiber reinforced ethylene–propylene copolymer (EPC) matrix composite. This kind of composite materials are commonly used for automotive functional and structural applications. To this aim, a multi-scale experimental approach is developed. The deformation processes and the damage mechanisms observed at the microscopic scale are related to the material mechanical properties at ...

Recycling of continuously reinforced thermoplastic composites (TPC) has a substantial prospect at present and in future due to its increasing availability and rapidly growing application regime. This study focusses on the first steps in using TPC process scrap on a scale in which its maximum potential can be utilised. It entails the mechanical response viz. elastic properties and strength of the flake reinforced plates under uniaxial tension. The plates were manufactured by compression moulding ...

Abstract This work presents an experimental study on the mechanical behaviour of thermoplastic polyarlyetherketone (PAEK) based composite laminates reinforced with woven carbon fibres, subjected to high strain rates under compression loading. The specimens were tested using a Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar (SHPB). The tests covered the working temperatures and stress envelopes of −54 °C, RT (25 °C), and 80 °C, each tested at six different off-axis angles. The high-speed imaging system was used to ...
