Abstract

The aim of this study was the examination and interpretation of the macroscopic features of compression tested glass-epoxy composites without foam layers and with foam layers placed either together at the mid region or introduced separately at specific locations during the layup sequence. The light and scanning electron microscopic examinations reveal a tendency towards lateral flow of material leading to lip formation for the plain glass-epoxy specimens. For the case of foam containing samples the regions of foam to G-E provide the sites for initial separation to take place. While this provision for separation along the interface is utilized by the MC variety test coupons, the 3L type shows features that suggest the coming together of the different paths of separation.
