Abstract:

Increase in strength over flake alone, or fiber alone, for flake-fiber combinations are reviewed. Techniques for centrifugally casting flake cylinders are reported. A continuation of studies on the notch sensitivity of flake composites still shows their relative insensitivity to concentrators. Data on mica flake-glass fiber combinations are presented. Significant increases in the modulus of flake composites with a carbon black filler are discussed, along with some applications of flake. Author
