Karthikeyan, CS and Kishore, * and Sankaran, S (2000) Comparison of compressive properties of fiber-free and fiber-bearing syntactic foams. In: Journal of Reinforced Plastics and Composites, 19 (9). pp. 732-742.Full text not available from this repository.
The comparative compressive properties of syntactic foam with and without the inclusion of E-glass fibers in the form of chopped strands are reported. The effort pointed to the fact that the fiber-free syntactic foam had a higher compressive strength than the fiber-bearing one whereas as regards the moduli values they did not differ much. The difference in strength is correlated with the amount of voids present in two foams. The scope of the work was further expanded by including scanning electron microscopy for examining: the surface features of samples prior to and after compression test.
