Abstract:

The R.A.E. carbon fibre is shown to be compatible with a wide range of thermosetting polymers and techniques are described for incorporating useful volume fractions of fibre into resin-bonded composites. Several important mechanical and physical properties were measured the good strength and very high specific stiffness predicted from the fibre properties were confirmed. A number of favourable potential applications for carbon-fibre plastics are discussed and an outline is given of the future programme of development. Author
