Effect of Fiber Orientation on the Tensile Strength in Fiber-Reinforced Polymeric Composite Materials
The study for strength calculation of one way fiber-reinforced composites and the study measuring precisely fiber orientation distribution were presented. However, because the DB that can predict mechanical properties of composite material and fiber orientation distribution by the fiber content ratio was not constructed, we need the systematic study for that. Therefore, in this study, we investigated what effect the fiber content ratio and fiber orientation distribution have on the strength of composite sheet after making fiber reinforced polymeric composite sheet by changing fiber orientation distribution with the fiber content ratio. The result of this study will become a guide to design data of the most suitable parts design or fiber reinforced polymeric composite sheet that uses the fiber reinforced polymeric composite sheet in industry spot, because it was conducted in terms of developing products. We studied the effect the fiber orientation distribution has on tensile strength of fiber reinforced polymeric composite material and achieved this results below. We can say that the increasing range of the value of fiber reinforced polymeric composite’s tensile strength in the direction of fiber orientation is getting wider as the fiber content ratio increases. It shows that the value of fiber reinforced polymeric composite’s tensile strength in the direction of fiber orientation 90° is similar with the value of polypropylene’s intensity when fiber orientation function is J= 0.7, regardless of the fiber content ratio. Tensile strength of fiber reinforced polymeric composite is affected by the fiber orientation distribution more than by the fiber content ratio.
