Strain rate effect on the mechanical properties of a glass fibre reinforced acrylic matrix laminate. An experimental approach
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of the loading rate on the mechanical properties and damage mechanisms of a Glass/Elium150 laminate composite. Quasi-static indentation (QS) and low energy dynamic impact (DYN) tests which simulate lifetime structural loadings (dropped tool, gravel impacts, …) are lead. A specific experimental approach is developed to compare results of both experiments. The effect of the loading rate on the structural response (stiffness, dissipated energy) of the composite is highlighted. The numerous damage mechanisms involved in the collapse of the material are observed at a microscopic scale using both optical and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Finally an intra-laminar crack propagation mechanism is described based on post-mortem observations at ply scale to explain the formation of interlaminar cracks

It is classically measured, in the pharmaceutical field, using the diametral compression test. Nevertheless, due to small contact area between the ...
Study of the dynamic fracture of hollow spheres under compression using the Discrete Element Method CORE, Arthur; KOPP, Jean-Benoit; GIRARDOT, Jérémie; VIOT, Philippe (ELSEVIER, 2018)Hollow sphere structure (HSS) belongs to cellular solids that have been studied recently for its multiples properties. In our case, HSS aims to absorb soft impacts energy on an airliner cockpit. This structure is investigated ...
