The effects of moisture and temperature on the interlaminar delamination toughness of a carbon/epoxy composite
1998 (English)In: Composites Science And Technology, ISSN 0266-3538, E-ISSN 1879-1050, Vol. 58, no 6, p. 967-977Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

HTA/6376C composite has been investigated for influence of temperature and moisture content on the interlaminar delamination toughness in mode I, mode II and mixed mode conditions. Dry and moisture-saturated specimens were tested over the temperature range - 50 °C to 100 °C. Evaluation methods based on load/displacement and load measurements were employed. In pure mode II the critical strain-energy release rate drops with moisture content and increase in temperature. In mixed mode the critical strainenergy release rate also decreases with moisture content, but no general trends in the dependence on temperature is observed. The critical strain-energy release rate in pure mode I is unaffected by changes in moisture content and was found to increase slightly at elevated temperatures. During crack propagation, enhanced fiber bridging due to increases in temperature and moisture content promotes R-curve behavior in the pure mode I tests. The resulting mode mixity of the mixed-mode bending (MMB) tests is found to be severely affected by the evaluation methods. Methods based on load measurements only are considered to give unreliable strain-energy release rates as the measured compliance/displacement relationships were found to be non-linear even prior to crack growth. Further studies are needed to assess the mixed-mode ratio in the MMB test.
