Load Effects on Mechanical properties of Glass fiber-reinforced polymers Laminates
Glass fiber; fiber-reinforced polymer; Resin transfer moulding machine technique ultimate tensile strength and breaking strength.
The demand for Glass fiber-reinforced polymers (GFRPs) in rehabilitation of infrastructure is increasing. New techniques use the light weight, high strength, and formability of GFRP fabrics and laminates in various applications. This paper presents the behavior of different types of GFRP laminates under load conditions produced using resin transfer moulding technique. Now days this technique is the most used in field and industrial applications of GFRPs like automotive structures. The scope of the paper is limited to only one mode of failure that is laminate failure under loading. It is noted that another form of failure is the bond at the interface. A total of 50 specimens were prepared using polyester and glass fiber with unidirectional fabrics in this study. The samples were exposed to normal environments and subjected to tensile test, flexural test and bending test. The results showed a significant ultimate tensile strength , breaking strength and bending load where glass FRP (GFRP crack was initiated at different Weight fraction of fibre and matrix.
