Numerical and experimental studies of damage generation in a polymer composite material at high strain rates
Samples of S2-glass/epoxy composites have been subjected to microstructural investigation after testing in compression at quasi-static and high strain rates using the split Hopkinson pressure bar. A numerical model was ...
Modeling quasi-static and high strain rate deformation and failure behavior of a (±45) symmetric E-glass/polyester composite under compressive loading
Quasi-static (1 × 10−3–1 × 10−2 s−1) and high strain rate (∼1000 s−1) compressive mechanical response and fracture/failure of a (±45) symmetric E-glass/polyester composite along three perpendicular directions were determined ...
High strain rate behavior of a SiC particulate reinforced Al2O3 ceramic matrix composite
The high strain rate deformation behavior of composite materials is important for several reasons. First, knowledge of the mechanical properties of composites at high strain rates is needed for designing with these materials ...
