Abstract:

The design and evaluation of flat specimens for the determination of the compressive strength and modulus of unidrectional carbon fiber, reinforced composites laminated from resin pre-impregnated sheet are described. Tests conducted to evaluate the strength specimen indicate that composite compressive strength increases with composite shear strength, suggesting that compressive failure follows from local failure of the resincarbon bond.
