Delamination Properties of a Vinyl-Ester/Glass Fibre Composite Toughened by Particulate-Modified Interlayers

Stevanovic, Dejan


The main aim of this work is to examine fracture toughness improvement mechanisms of a composite material containing tough interlayers modified with large thermoplastic particles. ¶ Various vinyl-ester (VE)/ poly(acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene) (ABS) blends were used for the interlayer-toughening of a VE/glass fibre composite to increase delamination resistance of the material under mode I and mode II loading. Dry ABS powder was mixed with the liquid resin in four different weight ratios: 3.5,...[Show more]
