Theoretical Prediction and Experimental Research on the Tensile Strength of GF-TPU Composite
Based on fiber length, fiber orientation distribution, ratio of length to diameter and fiber-matrix interface, the theoretic prediction equation of tensile strength has been established for glass fiber/thermoplastic polyurethane (GF-TPU) composite. The relationship between the structure and tensile strength of GF-TPU composite was theoretically and experimentally studied. The results showed that the predicted tensile strength fits the test results quite well.
