Abstract:

The effects of cure pressure on resin flow, compaction, void content, and mechanical properties of fiber reinforced composites were investigated. Tests were performed on laminates made of Fiberite T300976 and T300934 unidirectional prepreg tape. Data are presented on compaction, resin flow, and void content which tend support to the validity of the Springer-Loos model. Data are also given showing the effects of cure pressure on void content and on the compressive strength and short-beam shear strength and modulus.
