Paper Title:
Effects of Water Absorption Cycles on Fracture Toughness in Laminated CFRP Composites
  Abstract

Composite materials have drawn a lot of attention in recent years due to their being in expensive, lightweight and biodegradable. The polyetherimide has been successfully used as an effective toughening modifier for polyfuctional epoxy resins for aerospace use. The material used in this study was solvent-impregnated carbon-fiber fabric reinforced polyetherimide. In this study, effects of water absorption cycles on fracture toughness in carbon fiber reinforced composites (CFRP) have been investigated according to various absorption cycles. As a result, strength of CFRP composite was decreased according to increasing water absorption cycles.
