Abstract:

Dynamic punch shear behavior of unidirectional and plain weave S-2 GlassSC15 epoxy composites is presented. An incident bar and a transmission tube assembly in compression split-Hopkinson Bar setup is used for the dynamic punch shear study. Dispersion correction methodology is used with 3-wave analysis to convert the experimental bar data into dynamic load-displacement curves. A methodology for determining the average transverse shear strength of the composite laminates is described. The average transverse shear strength of unidirectional and plain weave composites as a function of displacement is presented.
