By George C. Sih, E.P. Chen

Composites supply nice promise as mild weight and powerful fabrics for prime functionality buildings. one of many significant merits of those fabrics in comparison with metals is the elemental method during which heterogeneity face up to crack extension. In a fiber/matrix composite process, the fibers are inclined to reason cracks to shape at nearer spacing and hold up the formation of a giant crack. The enhancement of neighborhood failure equivalent to fiber breaking, matrix cracking and interface debonding additional reduces the power point which would have differently reached the purpose of catastrophic failure. even if gigantic checks were made on composite fabrics, little has been received within the knowing and improvement of a predic­ tive approach for composite failure. There are basic problems linked to incorporating the nonhomogeneous and anisotropic prop­ erties of the composite into the continuum mechanics research. extra uncertainties come up from voids and defects which are brought within the composite in the course of production. Even a small volume of mechanical imperfections could cause a marked impression at the composite power. furthermore, the interface houses among the fibers and matrix or bonded laminae may also have an effect on the burden transmission features considerably. it'd be very unlikely to set up predictive strategies for composite failure until reasonable instructions might be constructed to regulate the producing caliber of composite systems.

This workshop, now an annual occasion, has been prepared via the pc snap shots Society, the collage of Geneva, and the Swiss Federal Institute of expertise in Lausanne.

Index of Crystallographic Supplies

This can be the 3rd version of the Index of Crystallographic offers ready on behalf of the overseas Union of Crystallography by means of its fee on Crystallographic equipment. the 1st used to be compiled by way of Professor A. Guinier in 1956 and the second one less than the editorship of Dr. A. J. Rose in 1959. at the moment, it used to be meant that book of revised versions of the Index might be a continual venture of succeeding Commissions.

Results obtained from these two models will now be compared theoretically for the Modulite II 5206 graphite-epoxy composite. Experimental data on the fracture of E-glass fiber reinforced Scotchply 1002 composite will also be discussed in connection with the theoretical prediction. Modulite II 5206 graphite-epoxy.
