Abstract:

The mechanical behavior of model composite specimens consisting of unidirectional piano-wire fibers in a matrix of Emerson and Cuming STYCAST 1264 was studied with compressive loading applied parallel to the fiber axis. Tests were conducted at temperatures ranging from 65 to 110F, as a means of varying the matrix material Youngs modulus while keeping the fiber properties constant. Author
