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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Quasi-static and high strain rate properties of a cross-ply metal matrix composite
A series of compression tests has been carried out at quasi-static and high strain rates on cylindrical samples of an alumina fiber/Al-6061 metal matrix composite. The composite plates were prepared with fibers in the 0°, ...
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 ...
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 ...
