The effective thermoelastic properties of composites reinforced with short-coated fibers whose orientations and aspect ratios are varied have been formulated. Under the assumption of thin coating, the stress field of the coated layer remains uniform across the thickness of the layer but otherwise...
Carbon/epoxy material in the form of a unidirectional composite was loaded under different conditions to determine the frequency content of acoustic emission signals. Special specimens, designed to fail under well-defined modes such as matrix cracking, debonding, fibre pull-out and fibre failure,...
This paper examines the effect of impulse loading from an underwater explosive shock wave on the damage to glass-reinforced polymer (GRP) laminates stitched through-the-thickness with Kevlar thread. Glass-fibre preforms were stitched in the parallel or transverse directions with a density of 3 or...
