Abstract:

The effects of materials used in composites for army aircraft applications are experimentally studied. An assortment of mechanical testing results is presented for boronepoxy, graphite, S glassepoxy, Thornelepoxy, and metal alloyepoxy composites. In addition, the effects of shapes, ply, notching, and edging in the failure of the composites are studied.
