This paper examines the effect of assumed tow architecture on the predicted moduli and stresses in plain weave textile composites. In particular, the effect of how a constant cross-section is assumed to sweep-out the volume of a tow is explored. Two architectures are examined which have a...
Resin transfer molding (RTM) finishes the resin impregnation and composite fabrication at the same time. It simplifies the process for composites fabrication and has the advantages of automation, low cost, and versatile design of fiber reinforcement. Therefore, the RTM process is widely used in...
This paper describes an experimental study on the tensile creep behavior of a random continuous fiber mat reinforced polypropylene composite, commercially known as Azdel. A special experimental setup was designed and used to conduct these creep tests at 75 and 100°C with stress levels ranging...
The nonlinear impact response of laminated composite cylindrical and doubly curved shells is analyzed using a modified Hertzian contact law. A finite element model is developed based on Sander's shell theory and includes shear deformation effects and nonlinearity due to large deflection. A nine...
Resin transfer molding (RTM) combines resin impregnation and composite fabrication in one process. It simplifies the process for composite fabrication and has the advantages of automation, low cost, and versatile design of fiber reinforcements. The RTM process was used in this study to fabricate...
Results are presented from a theoretical investigation of the effects of stacking sequence on the energy release rate in laminated composite end-notched flexure test specimens. Deflections and energy release rates of unidirectional and multidirectional ENF specimens are obtained by classical...
Composite materials reinforced with extended-chain polyethylene (ECPE) fibers are unlike typical stiff and brittle composite materials such as graphite/epoxy or fiberglass. The high ductility and energy absorption capacity of the ECPE reinforcing fibers gives these composites a unique mechanical...
