Contributions in the Study of Hybrid Layered Composites under Static and Variable Loads

Article Preview

The research work behind this paper focused a rather extensive assessment of hybrid composites made of pure aluminium sheets, alternating with GFRP and CFRP layers. Static, fatigue and low velocity impact tests were performed, combined with NDI on damaged samples, using Lockin thermography, on specimens obtained from the two hybrid laminates and from genuine GFRP and CFRP laminates, all having five layers. The static and fatigue tests were made on parallel specimens, un-notched and having a central 5 mm drilled hole, with various failure modes. The low velocity impact tests were followed by CAI tests, meant to evaluate residual mechanical performance and damage tolerance. Lockin thermography was used for prior assessment of damage.
