Abstract:

Off-axis tension tests were performed for coupon specimens of unidirectional graphiteepoxy composites at various temperatures. Elastic moduli and principal strengths of the composite were obtained by a simple procedure. To avoid the complication caused by the extension-shear coupling effect in off-axis testing, a new tab was designed and used on the test specimens. Excellent results for tensile modulus, tensile strength, shear modulus, shear strength, and Poissons ratio were obtained. Keywords Mechanical properties, Tensile modulus, Tensile strength, Shear modulus, Shear strength, Poissons ratio, Composite materials, Graphiteepoxy composites.
