Question

For a fiber composite with a fiber-matrix bond shear strength of 37.4 MPa and a critical fiber length-fiber diameter ratio of 50, what is the tensile strength of the fibers?

Answer #1

An expression for critical fiber length is given as-

where,

- Critical fiber length

- ultimate tensile strength

- Fiber diameter

- fiber-matrix bond strength.(37.4 MPa)

So,

put all values,

Thank you,

A unidirectional composite is made up of:
25 volume % of fiber type 1 (E = 300 GPa, Poisson's ratio n =
0.25), 25 volume % of fiber type 2 (E = 100GPa, Poisson's ratio n =
0.25), and 50 volume % of a matrix (E = 60 GPa and n = 0.30). The
tensile strength of fiber type 1 is 500MPa, that of fiber type 2 is
100MPa, and that of the matrix is 200MPa. Draw a tensile stress-...

16.0 (40 pts) The metal matrix of the composite described in
Prob. 15 is known to contain internal flaws up to 2.9 E-6 m is size
while the fiber has edge notches up to 8.4 E-6 m. Determine (a)
which cracks first, the matrix or the fiber and (b) determine the
critical composite stress (iso-strain and applied in the direction
of the fibers) at which the first critical crack forms. Assume Y=1
and Kic (matrix) and Kic(fiber) are 7.8 and...

Polymer composite materials have gained popularity because they
have high strength to weight ratios and are relatively easy and
inexpensive to manufacture. However, their nondegradable nature has
prompted development of environmentally friendly composites using
natural materials. An article reported that for a sample of 10
specimens with 2% fiber content, the sample mean tensile strength
(MPa) was 51.9 and the sample standard deviation was 1.2. Suppose
the true average strength for 0% fibers (pure cellulose) is known
to be 48...

How does shear strength differ between a sand sample at a depth
of 10 feet versus the same soil at a depth of 50 feet? What is the
impact on peak and critical state shear? Critical state void
ratio?

What instrument do you use to test fiber-matrix interface
strength?

Hot-pressed Si3N4has a tensile strength of
550 MPa. Flaws are present due to porosity remaining in the part;
the radius of curvature of these flaws is determined to be 0.005
cm. The part should be capable of withstanding an applied stress of
200 MPa. What is the maximum length of flaws that can be
tolerated?
