The Influence of Resin Mixture Ratio for the Use of Prepreg on the Fatigue Behavior Properties in FRMLs
Viewed 250 times since Wed, Sep 5, 2012
Fiber reinforced metal laminates(FRMLs) were new type of hybrid materials. FRMLs consist of high strength metals(Al 5052-H34) and laminated fiber with structural adhesive bond. The effect of resin mixture ratios on the fatigue crack propagation... Read More

Viewed 262 times since Sat, Jan 7, 2012
Impact damage induced by drop-weight instrument on different types of Glare fiber-metal laminates {FML’s) was studied experimentally. Indenters with various shapes and sizes were used in this study. For line-type Charpy indenters, the effect of... Read More
Determination of CTODC in Fibre Metal Laminates by ASTM and Schwalbe Methods
Viewed 316 times since Wed, Dec 28, 2011
Fibre Metal Laminates (FMLs) have arisen as a demand of the aeronautical industry to use thin sheets with high resistance to fatigue crack growth,  high damage tolerance, corrosion resistance and high specific strength. Considering these... Read More
Crack tunneling and Delamination in Fiber-Metal Laminates
Viewed 325 times since Sat, Nov 26, 2011
A specimen of Glare 3 2/1 0.3 with an initial imperfection in the metal layer, is analysed. The aluminium and fibre-reinforced prepeg layers are modeled using continuum solid like shell elements. Delamination between the metal and... Read More
