1 Chap.8 Mechanical Behavior of Composite 8-1. Tensile Strength of Unidirectional Fiber Reinforced Composite Isostrain Condition : loading parallel to fiber direction Fiber & Matrix – elastic case Modulus : works reasonably well Strength : does not work well Why? : intrinsic property (microstructure insensitive) : extrinsic property (microstructure sensitive) Factors sensitive on strength of composite - Fabrication condition determining microstructure of matrix - Residual stress - Work hardening of matrix - Phase transformation of constituents
2 Analysis of Tensile Stress and Modulus of Unidirectional FRC Assumption : Fiber : elastic & plastic Matrix : elastic & plastic Stress-Strain Curve of FRC - divided into 3 stages Stage I : fiber & matrix - elastic Rule of Mixtures Strength Modulus Stage II : fiber - elastic, matrix - plastic Strength : flow stress of matrix at a given strain Modulus
3 Stage III : fiber & matrix – plastic Strength UTS : ultimate tensile strength of fiber : flow stress of matrix at the fracture strain of fiber
4 Effect of Fiber Volume Fraction on Tensile Strength (Kelly and Davies, 1965) Assumption :Ductile matrix ( ) work hardens. All fibers are identical and uniform. same UTS If the fibers are fractured, a work hardenable matrix counterbalances the loss of load-carrying capacity. In order to have composite strengthening from the fibers, UTS of composite UTS of matrix after fiber fracture Minimum Fiber Volume Fraction As,. degree of work hardening
5 In order to be the strength of composite higher than that of monolithic matrix, UTS of pure matrix Critical Fiber Volume Fraction As,. degree of work hardening Note that always! ( )
Compressive Strength of Unidirectional Fiber Reinforced Composites Compression of Fiber Reinforced Composite Fibers - respond as elastic columns in compression. Failure of composite occurs by the buckling of fibers. Buckling occurs when a slender column under compression becomes unstable against lateral movement of the central portion. Critical stress corresponding to failure by buckling, where d is diameter, l is length of column.
8 2 Types of Compressive Deformation 1) In-phase Buckling : involves shear deformation of matrix predominant at high fiber volume fraction 2) Out-of-phase Buckling : involves transverse compression and tension of matrix and fiber pre-dominant at low fiber volume fraction Factors influencing the compressive strength : Interfacial Bond Strength : poor bonding easy buckling
Fracture Modes in Composites 1. Single and Multiple Fracture Generally, When more brittle component fractured, the load carried by the brittle component is thrown to the ductile component. If the ductile component cannot bear this additional load Single Fracture If the ductile component can bear this additional load Multiple Fracture
10 1) Single Fracture - predominant at high fiber volume fraction - all fibers and matrix are fractured in same plane - condition for single fracture stress beared by fiber additional stress which can be supported by matrix where : matrix stress corresponding to the fiber fracture strain 2) Multiple Fracture - predominant at low fiber volume fraction - fibers and matrix are fractured in different planes - condition for multiple fracture

12 Fracture of Continuous Fiber Reinforced Composite Fracture of fibers at crack plane or other position depending on the position of flaw Pullout of fibers For max. fiber strengthening fiber fracture is desired. For max. fiber toughening fiber pullout is desired. Analysis of Fiber Pullout Assumption : Single fiber in matrix : fiber radius l : fiber length in matrix : tensile stress on fiber : interfacial shear strength

Fatigue of Composite Materials Fatigue Failure in Homogeneous Monolithic Materials Initiation and growth of a single crack perpendicular to loading axis. Fatigue Failure in Fiber Reinforced Laminate Composites Pile-up of damages - matrix cracking, fiber fracture, fiber/matrix debonding, ply cracking, delamination Crack deflection (or Blunting) Reduction of stress concentration A variety of subcritical damage mechanisms lead to a highly diffuse damage zone.
34 Constant-stress-amplitude Fatigue Test Damage Accumulation vs Cycles Crack length in homogeneous material - accelerate ( increase of stress concentration) Damage (crack density) in composites - accelerate and decelerate ( reduction of stress concentration)

36 Fatigue of Particle and Whisker Reinforced Composites For stress-controlled cyclic fatigue or high cycle fatigue, particle or whisker reinforced Al matrix composites show improved fatigue resistance compared to Al alloy, which is attributed to the higher stiffness of the composites. For strain-controlled cyclic fatigue or low cycle fatigue, the composites show lower fatigue resistance compared to Al alloy, which is attributed to the lower ductility of the composites. Particle or short fibers can provide easy crack initiation sites. The detailed behavior can vary depending on the volume fraction, shape, size of reinforcement and mostly on the reinforcement/matrix bond strength.

Thermal Fatigue of Composite Materials Thermal Stress Thermal stresses arise in composite materials due to the generally large differences in thermal expansion coefficients( ) of the reinforcement and matrix. It should be emphasized that thermal stresses in composites will arise even if the temperature change is uniform throughout the volume of composite. Thermal Fatigue When the temperature is repeatedly changed, the thermal stress results in the thermal fatigue, because the cyclic stress is thermal in origin. Thermal fatigue can cause cracking of brittle matrix or plastic deformation of ductile matrix. Cavitation in the matrix and fiber/matrix debonding are the other forms of damage observed due to thermal fatigue of composites. Thermal fatigue in matrix can be reduced by choosing a matrix that has a high yield strength and a large strain-to-failure. The fiber/matrix debonding can only be avoided by choosing the constituents such that the difference in the thermal expansion coefficients of the reinforcement and the matrix is low.
