An experimental investigation of microcracking andphysical aging effects in polymer matrix composites isdescribed. The goal of the study was to assess the impactof aging on damage accumulation, in terms ofmicrocracking, and the impact of damage on aging andviscoelastic behavior. Results indicate...
Residual stress states within certain classes of polymeric adhesives andcoatings subjected to cyclic temperature conditions can becomeincreasingly tensile with exposure to cyclic temperature conditions.Under some conditions, these tensile stresses are believed to beresponsible for initiating...
This article concerns certain aspects of the time-dependent response ofcross-ply polymeric composites consisting of stitched graphite fiberstrands embedded in urethane resin. Experimental data were collected atseveral levels of stress and temperature, as well as at various loadorientations. The...
Techniques to characterize the mechanical properties ofadhesives in a bonded geometry are important because thebehavior can differ from that of bulk adhesive samples.Although there are a number of such tests, the simplicity ofthe sandwich beam specimen makes itattractive. This test involves...
