Book Description :

This book contains eight chapters that discuss the manufacturing methods, surface treatment, composite interfaces, microstructure-property relationships with underlying fundamental physical and mechanical principles, and applications of carbon fibers and their composites. Recently, carbon-based materials have received much attention for their many potential applications. The carbon fibers are very strong, stiff, and lightweight, enabling the carbon materials to deliver improved performance in several applications such as aerospace, sports, automotive, wind energy, oil and gas, infrastructure, defense, and semiconductors. However, the use of carbon fibers in cost-sensitive, high-volume industrial applications is limited because of their relatively high costs. However, its production is expected to increase because of its widespread use in high-volume industrial applications; therefore, the methods used for manufacturing carbon fibers and carbon-fiber-reinforced composites and their structures and characteristics need to be investigated.

Book Description :

The goal of this research is to examine the potential of Raman spectroscopy as a method of condition assessment for carbon fiber composite materials. Carbon fiber composites are used in high performance situations such as overwrapping of composite over-wrapped pressure vessels (COPVs) in aerospace applications and hydrogen and natural-gas transportation systems. The composites will play a larger role in the future due to the materials high strength to mass ratio. There are currently limited nondestructive evaluation (NDE) technologies to evaluate these composite materials in-situ. NDE technologies will be critical for analyzing environmentally caused degradation that can reduce strength and service life of the materials. Variations in elastic strain in the composite material can manifest from degradation or damage, and can be analyzed using Raman spectroscopy. The characterization of active Raman bands and the strain sensitivity of these bands for commercially available carbon fibers are reported. Additionally carbon fiber/epoxy matrix strands and burst COPV samples are investigated. These results indicate that Raman spectroscopy has some ability to make strain measurements in commercially available carbon fibers. Such measurements have the potential to be used as a tool for NDE in inspections and reliability assessment of carbon fiber composite materials.

Book Description :

Liquid crystal polymers (LCP) have been developed as a thermoplastic matrix for high performance composites. A successful melt impregnation method has been developed which results in the production of continuous carbon fiber (CF) reinforced LCP prepreg tape. Subsequent layup and molding of prepreg into laminates has yielded composites of good quality. Tensile and flexural properties of LCP/CF composites are comparable to those of epoxy/CF composites. LCP/CF composites have better impact resistance than the latter, although epoxy/CF composites possess superior compression and shear strength. LCP/CF composites have good property retention until 200 deg F (67% of room temperature value). Above 200 deg F, mechanical properties are found to decrease significantly. Experimental results indicate that the poor compression and shear strength may be due to the poor interfacial adhesion between the matrix and carbon fiber as well as inadequate toughness of the LCP matrix. Low mechanical property retention at high temperatures may be attributed to the low beta-transition temperature (around 80 deg C) of the LCP matrix material. jg p50.

Book Description :

Fiber reinforced composite materials have been used increasingly in primary and secondary structures in such applications as aircraft, satellites, automobiles, biomedical industries, marine, and sporting goods. This growth is due primarily to the characteristics of composite materials, which include high specific stiffness, high specific strength, and low density. Both carbon and glass fibers are often used as reinforcing fibers, embedded in polymer matrix material. The glass fibers are inexpensive, have high strength to weight ratio, but low stiffness. Carbon fiber is more expensive, but have a high strength to weight ratio and high stiffness.The delamination between composite layers is one of primary weaknesses in composite material structure. The mode I peeling, mode II shearing, and mixed-mode I/II are the most common delamination fracture crack driving modes between interfaces. Delamination can then lead to a reduction in the structural stiffness. If the structure has compression loading, buckling failure may ensue. The best design approach may find a compromise between less weight and less cost by using a hybrid material approach of both glass and carbon fibers.This research focused on a hybrid materials consisting of both glass and carbon fiber embedded in a polymer matrix, undergoing mode I, mode II, and mix mode I/II static interlaminar fracture. Glass fiber panels, carbon fiber panels, and hybrid panels were fabricated using the wet layup / vacuum bag technique. The non-hybrid all-glass, all-carbon, and hybrid glass/carbon were experimentally characterized by quasi-static testing in load frames. The specimen and material geometries (especially at material interfaces) were analyzed using the finite element method. The program Abaqus was utilized, including the cohesive zone method (CZM). Finally, the resulting fracture surfaces were investigated using a scanning electron microscope.The result showed the fracture toughness values of hybrid material (FG/CF) were between that of fiber glass and carbon fiber. Also, fracture toughness increased due to fiber bridging under static mode I, mode II, and mixed mode I/II . Fractographic imaging aided to study mechanical properties interface of hybrid (FG/CF) and comber with non-hybrid material of fiber glass and carbon fiber to investigate the differences between hybrid and non-hybrid.

Book Description :

The goal of Interface Science and Composites is to facilitate the manufacture of technological materials with optimized properties on the basis of a comprehensive understanding of the molecular structure of interfaces and their resulting influence on composite materials processes. From the early development of composites of various natures, the optimization of the interface has been of major importance. While there are many reference books available on composites, few deal specifically with the science and mechanics of the interface of materials and composites. Further, many recent advances in composite interfaces are scattered across the literature and are here assembled in a readily accessible form, bringing together recent developments in the field, both from the materials science and mechanics perspective, in a single convenient volume. The central theme of the book is tailoring the interface science of composites to optimize the basic physical principles rather than on the use of materials and the mechanical performance and structural integrity of composites with enhanced strength/stiffness and fracture toughness (or specific fracture resistance). It also deals mainly with interfaces in advanced composites made from high-performance fibers, such as glass, carbon, aramid, and some inorganic fibers, and matrix materials encompassing polymers, carbon, metals/alloys, and ceramics. Includes chapter on the development of a nanolevel dispersion of graphene particles in a polymer matrix Focus on tailoring the interface science of composites to optimize the basic physical principles Covers mainly interfaces in advanced composites made from high performance fibers

Book Description :

Composite materials are materials made from two or more constituents with significantly different physical or chemical properties; when combined, a new material with characteristics different from the individual components is produced, while the individual components remain separate and distinct within the finished structure. The new composite material often displays many beneficial characteristics; in many cases, composites are stronger, of lower density, or less costly in comparison to established materials. Based on the classification of composites, we are already familiar with the fact that there exists a myriad of different types of these materials. It is a common saying that different types of composites differ in their performance. Yet, composites also have some characteristics in common. The proper material choice for an envisaged application is of outstanding importance and key in the development of a new product. Selecting the most suitable material determines the performance and characterization of the final product whether it will meet the designated function and performance requirements. The present book "Characterizations of some composite materials" contains eight selected chapters, starting with a general introductory chapter on composite materials, and covers different aspects in characterizing some composite materials. In this context, the present book is considered an appropriate way to communicate the advances in characterization of some composite materials to the scientific community. Chemists, scientists, and researchers from related areas, and undergraduates involved in materials issues and interested in approaches to improve the quality of life, as well as people from industry could find this book to be an inspiring and effective guide.

Book Description :

The major goal of this project was to obtain basic information on compression failure properties of carbon fiber composites. To do this, we investigated fiber effects, matrix effects, and fiber/matrix interface effects. Using each of nine fiber types, we prepared embedded single-fiber specimens, single-ply specimens, and full laminates. From the single-fiber specimens, in addition to the standard fragmentation test analysis, we were able to use the low crack density data to provide information about the distribution of fiber flaws. The single-ply specimens provided evidence of a correlation between the size of kink band zones and the quality of the interface. Results of the laminate compression experiments mostly agreed with the results from single-ply experiments, although the ultimate compression strengths of laminates were higher. Generally, these experiments showed a strong effect of interfacial properties. Matrix effects were examined using laminates subjected to precracking under mixed-mode loading conditions. A large effect of precracking conditions on the mode 1 toughness of the laminates was found. In order to control the properties of the fiber/matrix interface, we prepared composites of carbon fiber and polycarbonate and subjected these to annealing. The changes in interfacial properties directly correlated with changes in compression strength. Nairn, John A. and Harper, Sheila I. and Bascom, Willard D.
