Investigation of Failure Behaviour of a Glass-Fibre Reinforced Thermoplastic Composite

Liang, Jiaai


This work focuses on the fibre dominated failure of the woven thermoplastic fibre-reinforced composite. The novel experimental methodology induced failures in different deformation modes for the Glass Fibre Reinforced Polypropylene (GFRP) composite studied. Hence the path dependency effect on the failure of this material system can be studied experimentally through the three-dimensional (3D) Digital Image Correlation (DIC) system. A novel failure metric based...[Show more]
