An Assessment of the Effect of Progressive Water Absorption on the Interlaminar Strength of Unidirectional Carbon/Epoxy Composites Using Acoustic Emission

AE was able to distinguish different material behaviours prior to final fracture for unaged and aged specimens suggesting that it can be integrated into an aerospace asset management system and shows that conservative knockdown factors may be used in design.

Influence of water absorption on the mechanical behavior of CFRPs manufactured by RTM at room temperature

Deterioration of the physical properties of fiber-reinforced composites is inevitable under a high temperature and humidity environment. The resin transfer molding (RTM) process for large composite

Mechanical behaviour of carbon fibre reinforced polymer composite material at different temperatures: Experimental and model assessment

In the present study, temperature and frequency effects are studied involving carbon fibre reinforced polymeric materials with unidirectional fibers. Before testing, laminates were preserved in a

Acid Aging of CFRP Composite Materials for Solar UAV Structure

The purpose of this investigation is to study the performance degradation mechanism of CRRP composite materials used in the structure of a solar UAV under acid rain environment and to provide

Prediction of statistical life time for unidirectional CFRTP under water absorption

Carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) with the matrix of thermoplastic resin called as carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastics (CFRTPs) has been widely used in the industrial fields. Recently, a

An Analysis of Mechanical Properties and Flexural Behavior of Concrete Slabs Reinforced with H.F.R.P Reinforcements

In the era of concrete, concrete is exposed to chemical, such as carbonation and chloride adulteration break down the alkaline barrier in the cement. Subsequently, steel in the concrete becomes

Although surface grinding is reported to be capable of precision material removal in carbon fibre reinforced epoxy polymer composites (CFRPs), it is highly limited by deprived cutting temperature

Impact of Prolonged Exposure of Eleven Years to Hot Seawater on the Degradation of a Thermoset Composite

This paper presents a long-term experimental investigation of E-glass/epoxy composites’ durability exposed to seawater at different temperatures and found a correlation between the fiber/matrix debonding, potholing, fiber pull-out, river line marks and matrix cracking with deterioration in the tensile characteristics of the thermoset composite.



Water absorption and low-energy impact and their role in the failure of ±45° carbon fibre composites

Defects in polymer composites associated with in-service damage induced by impact and those produced by environmental degradation due moisture absorption can have a significant influence on the
