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 ...
Influence of surface modification of fillers and polymer on flammability and tensile behaviour of polypropylene-composites
An intumescent system consisting of ammonium polyphosphate (APP) as an acid source and blowing agent, pentaerythritol (PER) as a carbonific agent and natural zeolite (clinoptilolite, Gördes II) as a synergistic agent was ...
Mechanical and thermal behavior of non-crimp glass fiber reinforced layered clay/epoxy nanocomposites
Mechanical and thermal properties of non-crimp glass fiber reinforced clay/epoxy nanocomposites were investigated. Clay/epoxy nanocomposite systems were prepared to use as the matrix material for composite laminates. X-ray ...
Development of novel multilayer materials for impact applications: A combined numerical and experimental approach
A well-verified and validated numerical model was used to investigate stress wave propagation in a multilayer material subjected to impact loading. The baseline material consisted of a ceramic faceplate and composite backing ...
