ABSTRACT: This study investigates initiation and propagation of damage zones in the composite plates of an adhesively bonded single-lap joint in tension at the mesoscale level. A set of material degradation rules is applied to the mechanical properties of each failed ply of the plates based on...
ABSTRACT: In this article, a procedure for recycling of polypropylene (PP)-based sandwich panels is presented. PP/glass laminates as the skins and PP foam as the core material are used. The waste panel is converted into short-fiber composite material. The panel is first ground by a mill and...
In this study, fiber-reinforced microcellular foams are produced via injection molding and studied as a function of mold temperature as well as wood, blowing agent, and coupling agent concentrations. Birch wood fibers are added to a post-consumer recycled HDPE/PP matrix (85: 15 ratio) in...
ABSTRACT: In the first part of this study, fiber-reinforced microcellular foams were produced via injection molding to study their morphological properties as a function of mold temperature as well as wood, blowing agent, and coupling agent concentrations. Yellow birch wood fibers are added to a...
Wood-fiber reinforced polylactide is a biodegradable composite where both fibers and matrix are from renewable resources. When designing new materials of this kind, it is useful to measure the influence of fiber–matrix interface properties on macroscopic mechanical properties. In particular, a...
In the present study, the effect of moisture on the interlaminar fracture toughness of two woven fabric composite materials has been investigated. The composites used are made of a woven fabric 8H Satin glass fiber and 8H Satin carbon fiber. The matrix is a polyetherimide (PEI). The composites...
ABSTRACT: In this study, the viscoelastic properties of a low-density polyethylene (LDPE) filled with glass beads (GBs) are measured at 150 C by means of a capillary rheometer to identify the effect of the particle size on the melt viscoelasticity. The volume fraction of the GB was 8.4%. The...
