The Effect of Embedded Optical Fibers on the Static Mechanics of Composite Materials
This paper mainly investigates the effect of embedded optical fibers on the tensile and bending propertities of cross-ply glass fiber reinforced plastics. Different optical fibers and different embedded layers are both considered. The results show nearly all the specimens are varying within a small region. But 3 OF at 0°embedded in bending specimens exhibit about 18.3% reduction, and the effect of 3 OF in the under layer is more than that of 3 OF in the upper layer.
