Effective Young’s Modulus of Syntactic Foams with Hollow Glass Microspheres


Article Preview

. The Young’s modulus of syntactic foams were studied both the experiment and the theory. The compressive test and dynamic mechanical analysis were progressed for a few of specimens, which were made of the syntactic foams with the epoxy resin and hollow glass microspheres (HGMs). the equations for Young’s modulus of concentrated particulate composites were derived using a differential scheme of an infinitely dilute system, and were employed to prediction the Young’s modulus of syntactic foams. The computed effective Young’s moduli were compared with the experimental results, the prediction values were between the lower and upper bounds of the experimental data, and the prediction model was acceptable and can estimate the Young’s modulus of syntactic foams.
