Impact Damage Resistance of Glass/Epoxy Laminates with Embedded Shape Memory Alloy

Abstract:

Article Preview

This paper deals with the damage resistance of glass/epoxy laminates with embedded shape memory alloy (SMA) subjected to low-velocity impact at various temperatures. For this goal, the impact tests were performed by using an instrumented impact-testing machine at three temperatures: +20°C, -10°C and -40°C. And the resultant damages were inspected through the scanning acoustic microscope (SAM). Also, based on the impact force history and the damage configuration, the impact resistance parameters were employed to evaluate damage resistance of laminates with embedded SMA wires. As results, it was found that the damage resistance of glass/epoxy laminates with embedded SMA wires is dependent on the service temperature.
