Effect of aluminum closed-cell foam filling on the quasi-static axial crush performance of glass fiber reinforced polyester composite and aluminum/composite hybrid tubes
The effect of Al closed-cell foam filling on the quasi-static crushing behavior of an E-glass woven fabric polyester composite tube and thin-walled Al/polyester composite hybrid tube was experimentally investigated. For ...
Artificial neural network (ANN) prediction of compressive strength of VARTM processed polymer composites
A three layer feed forward artificial neural network (ANN) model having three input neurons, one output neuron and two hidden neurons was developed to predict the ply-lay up compressive strength of VARTM processed E-glass/ ...
Enhancement of interlaminar fracture toughness of carbon fiber–epoxy composites using polyamide-6,6 electrospun nanofibers
In this study, carbon fiber–epoxy composites are interleaved with electrospun polyamide-6,6 (PA 66) nanofibers to improve their Mode-I fracture toughness. These nanofibers are directly deposited onto carbon fabrics before ...
Modification of carbon fibre/epoxy composites by polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) based electrospun nanofibres
(Adcotec Ltd., 2016)
In this study, the effects of modifying interlaminar region of unidirectional carbon fibre/epoxy composites by the incorporation of electrospun polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) nanofibres were investigated. PVA nanofibres were ...
Mode-I fracture toughness of carbon fiber/epoxy composites interleaved by aramid nonwoven veils
In this study, carbon fiber/epoxy (CF/EP) composites were interleaved with aramid nonwoven veils with an areal weight density of 8.5 g/m(2) to improve their Mode-I fracture toughness. The control and aramid interleaved ...
