Impact behavior on fiberglass reinforced laminates with the variation of composite core structure


Ramu Kolusu, Venkata Ramesh Mamilla

Fiber reinforced composites have become increasingly important over the past few years and are now the first choice for fabricating structures where low weight in combination with high strength and stiffness are required. Fiber Reinforced Plastics (FRP) composites are in greatest commercial use. They have been extensively used in aerospace, automotive, marine and construction industries due to their inherent advantages over conventional metals. Failure modes of such laminated structures are also different than those of conventional metallic materials. Impact is one such great design limitation criteria involved in designing new composite products. The objective of this paper, impact behavior on fiberglass reinforced laminates with the variation of composite core structure. The investigation is carried on the effect of adding a protective layer of rubber to the laminates. Impact test will be conducted on various models with the variation of core structure/layer orientation to find impact behavior on fiberglass reinforced laminates. This paper also involves optimum core structure in which impact test will be conducted by adding rubber layer.
