Impact damage tolerance of carbon fibre reinforced plastics

Abstract:

Carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) is a composite composed of very high strength and stiffness carbon fibres within a polymer matrix. Low mass and cost make CFRP attractive for aerospace applications. At present application of CFRP is limited by the poor residual strength and fatigue properties of the material following impact damage, and because of the limited understanding of the problem.

Damage to CFRP results in a combination of fibre fracture and matrix cracking. The streng...
