Flax provides a renewable source of fibres with good mechanical properties, which justifies its use as a reinforcement for polymers. Composite materials made with flax which has only undergone mechanical treatments (stripping followed by combing) results in the presence of bundles of fibres. When a unidirectional flax/polyester ply is loaded in transverse(More)
This paper presents test results from mode I interlaminar fracture and transverse tensile tests on unidirectional carbon/epoxy composites used in racing yacht construction. Fibre modulus has been varied from 380 to 640 GPa. PAN fibre reinforced composite properties, delamination resistance (GIc and GIp) and transverse strain to failure, decrease as fibre(More)
