• Characterization methods of delamination in a plain woven CFRP composite

    2 monthes ago - By Springer

    Abstract
    A plain woven carbon fiber reinforced polymer is characterized concerning its delamination behavior. The results of the mode 1 fracture test show the significant run-arrest behavior of the investigated composite. To evaluate the compatibility of the data reduction method based on the modified beam theory, which has been introduced in the ASTM D5528, another method based on the linear elastic fracture mechanic is also performed to calculate the initial fracture toughness. The results from both data reduction methods correlate with each other very well. Meanwhile, the mode 2...
