The notch and strain rate sensitivity of non-crimp glass fibre/vinyl-ester laminates subjected to uniaxial tensile loads has been investigated experimentally. Two sets of notch configurations were tested; one where circular holes were drilled and another where fragment simulating projectiles were...
Marine composite sandwich structural materials, comprising of low density PVC foam core and carbon fiber reinforced vinyl ester based resin composite facings, are studied for associated degradation in mechanical behavior caused by sea water. This paper presents experimental and analytical results...
