Characteristics of CFRP Structure of Bending Strength and Rigidity According to Stacking Orientation Angle
Carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) have high strength in comparison with dimensional stability, invariability of material property, high strength and rigidity, corrosion resistance. Therefore, CFRP is widely used in various fields including space and aviation industries, sports and leisure industries, and general structural members and parts. To achieve structural members of CFRP with high strength and rigidity, theoretical approaches is limited to isotropic material, and empirical studies have been conducted. As with other composite materials, CFRP shows different rigidity and strength due to difference in properties in fiber and matrix material. In this study, CFRP specimen with changing stack orientation angle was manufactured as general structural application, and bending strength and rigidity of the corresponding composite was measured. In addition, square aluminium tube reinforcement is applied to prevent the shortcoming of CFRP. Vacuum compressed CFRP via autoclave with square aluminium tube reinforcement material (Hybrid) was evaluated by changing of orientation angle.
