Fibre re-arrangement and matrix softening phenomena in matrix-coated fibre (MCF) composites during vacuum hot pressing consolidation

Abstract:

Experiments were carried out under constant load with increasing temperature during uniaxial constrained compression (vacuum hot pressing) to investigate the consolidation behaviour of matrix-coated fibres (MCFs). Regular fibre arrays were achieved in the consolidated specimen by a fine control of the die assembly from which the matrix deformation behaviour was extracted. The results indicate that there exists a softening temperature at which the MCFs start to deform rapidly, which leads to a...
