Tensile (Compressive) Properties of Glass-Epoxy Composites as a Function of Volume Fraction

The mechanical performance of unidirectionally reinforced glass epoxy composites is studied as volume fraction filler is varied over the range 30-70 percent. Experimentally determined quantities include longitudinal and transverse tensile strength, ultimate strain, modulus and Poissons ratio and longitudinal and transverse compressive strength. Data analysis indicate that all properties vary linearly with volume fraction. Longitudinal properties and Poissons ratio are interpreted in terms of the rule of mixtures.
