Thispaper documentsthe resultsof work undertaken to evaluate the effects of eccentric loading conditions on the surface shear strains and stress distributions in layered quasi-laminar composite on opposite faces of the specimen as well as more pronounced shear stress gradients through-thickness....
Ultrasonic welding of thermoplastic composites has become an important process in industry because of its relatively low cost and high quality resultant joints. However, the optimization of this technique has been essentially based on a trial-and-error process. In this report, an L18 orthogonal...
A new method to determine the compression after impact (CAI) strength of composite laminates was presented. In this method, an impact damage zone was modeled as an equivalent hole. The most outstanding characteristic of the method was that the simplification of the impact damage was based on the...
An analytical investigation is conducted into the problemof a matrix crack interacting with an inclusion possessing an interphase and subjected to a thermal load. The interphase is modeled as a third, homogeneous phase surrounding the circular inclusion. By using a dislocation based approach to...
Among the test methods to evaluate the bonding between fiber and matrix, the single fiber fragmentation (SFF) test or single fiber composite (SFC) test method is the simplest in terms of the experimental setup, and therefore commonly used. But the analysis of the SFF test data at the saturation...
The strength of diamond braided composites is examined and the experimentally observed trends from the braid architectures are simulated using the micromechanics models. The effect of continuity of yarns at the edge of specimen is also studied. Standard tensile tests performed on both types of...
This paper presents a simple model to predict the load-deflection curve of a fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) reinforced masonry beam subjected to bending and axial loads. Delamination growth is modeled by using an energy balance approach. It is shown that continuously growing delamination results...
