8 Composites - polymer matrix composites (PMCs) Carbon fibers frequently used as woven fabrics impregnated with an epoxy

9 Composites - polymer matrix composites (PMCs)

10 Woven carbon fiber fabrics in auto industry BMW M6 - roof (unpainted) 'vette Z06 - front fenders, wheel wells, floor Porsche Carrera GT ($440,000) - frame Scion accessories - gear shift knob ($49), fuel-filler door ($39), roof pillar appliqués ($75-189), etc.

11 Composites - polymer matrix composites (PMCs) Matrix

12 Composites - polymer matrix composites (PMCs) Very common - polyesters, vinyl esters

13 Composites Role of matrix in FR composites: a. transfer stresses betwn fibers b. provide barrier to environment c. protect fibers Role of matrix in FR composites: a. transfer stresses betwn fibers b. provide barrier to environment c. protect fibers Matrix/fiber bond: matrix must wet fiber physical & chemical bond desirable mechanical interlocking Matrix/fiber bond: matrix must wet fiber physical & chemical bond desirable mechanical interlocking Fibers frequently coated w/ coupling agent

14 non-coupled Composites coupled

15 Composites Fibers - variables amount fiber length distribution orientation Fibers - variables amount fiber length distribution orientation

16 Composites Fibers - variables amount fiber length distribution orientation Fibers - variables amount fiber length distribution orientation Fiber orientation can be random aligned intermediate Fiber orientation can be random aligned intermediate
