Development of High Performance Fiber Reinforced Composite with Negative Thermal Expansion Property
There are exists positive thermal expansion property for almost all materials. However, in many cases, the material property with negative thermal expansion is requested for engineering applications. This work is to develop high performance fiber-reinforced composites with negative thermal expansion by using high strength polyethylene fiber Dyneema®, high strength PBO fiber ZYLON®, aramid fiber Technora ® and carbon fibers.
