Mechanical interlocking between porous electrospun polystyrene fibers and an epoxy matrix
(American Chemical Society, 2014)
An epoxy matrix filled with nonwoven mats of porous polystyrene (PS) fibers processed by an electrospinning was compression tested at quasi-static (1 × 10–3 s–1) and high strain (315 s–1) rates. The electrospun PS fibers ...
Effect of strain rate on the compression behaviour of a woven fabric S2-glass fiber reinforced vinyl ester composite
Quasi-static (~10−3s−1) and high strain rate (>500 s−1) compression behavior of an S2-glass woven fabric/vinyl ester composite plate was determined in the in-plane and through-thickness directions. In both directions, ...
Effect of strain rate on the compressive mechanical behavior of a continuous alumina fiber reinforced ZE41A magnesium alloy based composite
The compressive mechanical response of an FP™ continuous fiber (35 vol.%) Mg composite has been determined in the transverse and longitudinal directions at quasi-static and high strain rates. It was found that the composite ...
Effect of strain rate on the compression behavior of a woven glass fiber/SC-15 composite
Strain rate dependent compression behavior of a plain-weave S-2 glass fabric SC-15 epoxy (rubber toughened resin) composite plate, currently studied as the backing plate for composite armor applications, was determined in ...
High strain rate deformation behavior of a continuous fiber reinforced aluminum metal matrix composite
An aluminum metal matrix composite reinforced with continuous unidirectional α-Al2O3 fibers has been compression tested at quasi-static and dynamic strain rates. In the transverse direction, the composite showed increased ...
Diatom frustule-filled epoxy: Experimental and numerical study of the quasi-static and high strain rate compression behavior
In this study, centric type diatom frustules obtained from a diatomaceous earth filter material were used as filler in an epoxy resin with a weight percentage of 15% in order to assess the possible effects on the compressive ...
