Abstract:

Mechanical property characterization experiments have been carried out on a 2-D, woven, carbon-carbon composite. These were followed by tests to determine statistical variability and size effects. Tension, compression, in plane and interlaminar shear tests, unnotched and notched four point beam and plate with and without holes tests were performed. Weibull distribution parameters are reported.
