Interlaminar Fracture Behavior of Carbon Fiber/Polyimide Composites Toughened by Interleaving Thermoplastic Polyimide Fiber Veils

The results indicated that the introduction of thermally stable TPPI fiber veils could enhance the fracture toughness of CF/TSPI composites by exceeding 200% as compared to the untoughened one even as tested at 250 °C.

Progress in interlaminar toughening of aerospace polymer composites using particles and non-woven veils

Abstract Fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites generally have a layered architecture and are commonly manufactured with thermosetting resins—making them susceptible to interlaminar fracture (i.e.

Enhancement of the Interlaminar Fracture Toughness of a Carbon-Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Using Interleaved Carbon Nanotube Buckypaper

In this study, a carbon nanotube (CNT) buckypaper was interleaved in a carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composite to improve the interlaminar fracture toughness. Interleaving the film of a

Experimental Study on the Interlaminar Fracture Properties of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer Composites with a Single Embedded Toughened Film

A significant increase in both mode I and mode II toughness resulted when introducing a single PU film, approximately 290% and 50%, respectively, and the epoxy film improved the interlaminar fracture properties.

Interleaving CFRP and GFRP with a Thermoplastic Ionomer: The Effect on Bending Properties

Carbon and glass fiber reinforced polymers are employed in a variety of structural applications that require high stiffness and lightweight composites. However, poor through thickness properties make



Mode-I fracture toughness of carbon fiber/epoxy composites interleaved by aramid nonwoven veils

In this study, carbon fiber/epoxy (CF/EP) composites were interleaved with aramid nonwoven veils with an areal weight density of 8.5 g/m2 to improve their Mode-I fracture toughness. The control and

Enhancement of interlaminar fracture toughness of carbon fiber–epoxy composites using polyamide‐6,6 electrospun nanofibers

In this study, carbon fiber–epoxy composites are interleaved with electrospun polyamide-6,6 (PA 66) nanofibers to improve their Mode-I fracture toughness. These nanofibers are directly deposited onto
