Impact response of interleaved composite materials
(Virginia Tech, 1988-12-15)
The need for better impact resistant composites has resulted in the development of many toughened resin systems. A combination of a tougher resin system along with higher strength fibers increases the impact resistance of ...
Feasibility of fiber reinforced composite materials used in highway bridge superstructures
(Virginia Tech, 1988-12-05)
<p>Composite materials are considered here as structural materials of highway bridge superstructures. Bridge deck designs can be done according to <i>AASHTO</i><sup>1</sup> specification and elastic design concepts. </p><p> ...
Global-local finite element analysis of laminated composites
(Virginia Tech, 1988-07-11)
<p>A Global-Local finite element approach was used to investigate the interlaminar stresses in laminated composite plates with a central circular hole. Detailed solutions were sought for the interlaminar normal stress ...
