Kishore, * and Khan, Bijoysri and Viswanath, B (2000) Effect of insertion of buffer-strip on the response of carbon-epoxy system in short beam tests. In: Advanced Composites Letters, 9 (5). pp. 329-333.Full text not available from this repository.
dThe work looks at the response to three-point loading of carbon-epoxy (CF-EP) composites with inserted buffer strip (BS) material. Short beam Shear tests were performed to study the load-deflection response as well as fracture features through macroscopy on the CF-EP system containing the interleaved PTFE-coated fabric material. Significant differences were noticed in the response of the CF-EP system to the bending process consequent to the architectural modification. It was inferred that introduction of small amounts of less adherent layers of material at specific locations causes a decrement in the load carrying capability. Further the number and the ease with which interface separation occurs is found to depend on the extent to which the inserted layer is present in either single or multiple layer positions.
