Paper Title:
Fibre-Fibre Hybrid Composites for Aerospace Applications
  Abstract

The extruded poly ether ether ketone (PEEK) and glass fibre were used to obtain the co-woven hybrid fibre fabrics and converted into composites using compression moulding technique. The effect of shear stress and shear rate on the shear viscosity of PEEK was investigated to optimise the process conditions for converting hybrid fabrics into composites. The mechanical properties such as flexural strength and inter laminar shear strength (ILSS) as a function of number of layers of fabric have been evaluated. Low velocity (2.1 m/s) repeated drop weight impact tests were carried out on the fabricated composites at 5 and 10 J incident energy. Dielectric properties as a function of temperature and frequency have been carried out. Flammability behaviour of composites has been carried out using cone calorimeter. The data generated shows that glass-PEEK based composites are excellent potential materials for advanced structural composites.
