The effect of rubber micro-particles and silica nano-particles on the tensile fatigue behaviour of a glass-fibre epoxy composite


Fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) matrix composites are widely used in airframe structural components. Although composites offer good and useful structural properties, they are brittle. Indeed, the commonly employed thermosetting epoxy matrices typically have a poor resistance to crack initiation and growth. Therefore, efforts have been made to improve the… (More)
