Abstract:

Notched and unnotched instrumented Charpy impact data and tensile, flexural, compressive and shear property data of multi-angle and hybrid graphite reinforced epoxy resin composites are presented from the perspective of property trade-off studies. Two Modulite 5206 basic graphite fiber orientations are evaluated composites in which the filament repeating unit direction is 1 0 degrees, and 2 0 degrees, 45 degrees, -45 degrees and 90 degrees. The hybrid configurations are fabricated using the basic graphite orientations with discrete amounts of supplementary third phase fibers glass, Nomex, and PRD-49 Type III interspersed in the composites in 0 degree and in -45 degree and 45 degree directions.
