Abstract: CFRP composite material, which is reinforced with carbon fiber, features superior heat and corrosion resistance, and these benefits enables the gradual applications on aerospace industries and sports-entertainment business. However, guarantee on superior strength and rigidity on harsh condition, such as hot moisture environment and collision load is extremely difficult. Therefore, in study moisture absorption test was conducted until complete moisture absorption in test specimen using hygrothermal heat chamber to evaluate strength degradation in CFRP composite under hygrothermal environment. As a result, the effect of moisture absorption and impact loads of approximately 50% reduction in strength are shown.

Abstract: CFRP composite with light weight, high strength, and high elasticity compared to metal is widely used rather than previous steel plates. However, CFRP composite material has the weakness in hygrothermal and impact collapsed environment. Especially, moisture absorption into composite material under hygrothermal environment can change molecule arrangement and chemical properties. Therefore, the purpose of this study lies in acquiring quantitative design data that can be put into the practice by comparing and evaluating the strength degradation under the environment where the moisture is absorbed by conducting static and impact collapse test after setting extreme condition for CFRP composite that takes consistent form such as frontal side members that is actually used in vehicle. This study compared and studied change in the progress of a moisture absorption ratio after setting up the temperature of 60 degrees, and 80 degrees in order to comprehend how the change in the temperature impacts on moisture absorption status inside CFRP composite materials. As a result of this study showed that the strength reduction of about 50% appears due to moisture absorptions. In addition, it showed that the higher the temperature is, the more rapid the progress of a moisture absorption inside CFRP composite materials is. Accordingly, it showed that the change in matrix also has a weak point.
