Influence of Carbon Fiber Pre-Treatments on Interlaminar Shear Strength and Fracture Behavior of C/C Composites

Article Preview

PAN-carbon fibers were pretreated using three methods. 2D-C/C composites were fabricated by a rapid chemical liquid-vaporized infiltration (CLVI) processing. Surface morphologies of carbon fiber pretreated and fracture micrographs of 2D-C/C composites were observed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and high resolution transmission electron microscope (HRTEM). The interlaminar shear strength(ILSS) of C/C composites was tested. The influences of carbon fiber surface pretreatments on ILSS and fracture behaviors of C/C composites were analyzed. The experimental results indicated that the C/C composite with carbon fiber coated CVI pyrocarbon possesses both higher flexural strength and interlaminar shear strength than composites with other fiber pretreatments. The fractographes revealed the differences in the mechanical behavior depending on the interface strength of fiber/matrix.
