  3. 3. Introduction to composites What is a composite Material ? Two or more chemically distinct materials which when combined have improved properties over the individual materials. Example: Wood, Bamboo, Bricks. Composites are combinations of two materials in which one of the material is called the reinforcing phase, is in the form of fibers, sheets, or particles, and is embedded in the other material called the matrix phase. It is the main constituent of composites materials mainly responsible for its mechanical properties. Its percentage in the composite may be up to 70% by volume.

  7. 7. Classification of composites First Level (Matrix Material) Polymer Matrix composites (epoxides, polyesters, nylons, etc) Ceramic Matrix Composites (SiC, glass ceramics, etc) Metal Matrix Composites (aluminum alloys, magnesium alloys, titanium, etc) Second Level (reinforcement form) Fibre -short or long fibre ((S-glass, R-glass, carbon fibres, boron fibres, ceramic fibres and aramid) Yarn Fabric Composites (woven , knitted , nonwoven and braided)
  8. 8. Polymer Matrix Composites On the basis of type of polymer resin used, composite materials can be classified into two categories. • Thermoplastic Composites • Thermo-set Composites Thermoplastic Composites: This is type of composite material with thermoplastic resin like polyester, HDPE etc. They are lesser used as high-tech materials due to their higher viscosity which cause problem during their penetration into the reinforcement. Thermo-set Composites: In these composites thermo-set polymers like epoxy, unsaturated polyester and vinyl-ester are used as resin. They are most used type of composites materials in automotive, naval, aeronautical and aerospace applications.
  9. 9. Polymer Matrix Composites Polymer matrix composites (PMC) and fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) are referred to as Reinforced Plastics. Common fibers used are glass (GFRP), graphite (CFRP), boron, and aramids (Kevlar). These fibers have high specific strength (strength-to-weight ratio) and specific stiffness (stiffness-to-weight ratio) Matrix materials are usually thermoplastics or thermosets; polyester, epoxy (80% of reinforced plastics), fluorocarbon, silicon, phenolic.
  10. 10. Ceramic Matrix Composites Ceramic matrix composites (CMC) are used in applications where resistance to high temperature and corrosive environment is desired. CMCs are strong and stiff but they lack toughness (ductility). Matrix materials are usually silicon carbide, silicon nitride and aluminum oxide, and mullite (compound of aluminum, silicon and oxygen). They retain their strength up to 3000 o F. Fiber materials used commonly are carbon and aluminum oxide. Applications are in jet and automobile engines, deep-see mining, cutting tools, dies and pressure vessels.
  11. 11. Metal Matrix Composites The metal matrix composites offer higher modulus of elasticity, ductility, and resistance to elevated temperature than polymer matrix composites. But, they are heavier and more difficult to process.
  12. 12. Classification on the Basis of Reinforcements The reinforcements used during manufacturing may be in form of laminates which are combined to get certain thickness or in the form of thick woven cloth. So on the basis of reinforcement composites can be categorized in two categories : 1. Laminated Composites 2. 3-D woven Composites Laminated Composites: In laminar composites the layers of reinforcement are stacked in a specific pattern to obtain required properties in the resulting composite piece . These layers are called plies or laminates. Laminates can be composed of reinforcement material which may be • Woven • Knitted • Non woven • Braided • Fiber reinforced • Matt • Uni-directional fibers or UDs
  13. 13. Woven fabric-reinforced composites Woven fabrics, characterized by the interlacing of two or more yarn systems, are currently the most widely used textile reinforcement with glass, carbon and aramid reinforced . woven composites being used in a wide variety of applications, including aerospace (Fig. 11.4).Woven reinforcement exhibits good stability in the warp and Optical micrograph of woven composite- side view
  14. 14. Woven fabric-reinforced composites The mechanical properties of woven fabric-reinforced composites are dominated by the type of fibre used, the weaving parameters and the stacking and orientation of the various layers. Woven reinforcement exhibits good stability in the warp and weft directions and offers the highest cover or yarn packing density in relation to fabric thickness. Glass-reinforced woven fabrics give rise naturally to composites with lower mechanical properties because of the much lower value of the glass fibre modulus compared to carbon. Prepreg manufacturers were able, by the early 1980s, to supply woven fabrics in the prepreg form familiar to users of nonwoven material.
  15. 15. Woven fabric-reinforced composites
  16. 16. 3D woven composites These composites have reinforcement of 3D woven or 2D+ multilayer interlock fabric. These composites have much better through the thickness properties as compared to laminated composites
  17. 17. Knitted fabric-reinforced composites The major advantages of knitted fabric-reinforced composites are the possibility of producing net shape/near net shape preforms, on the one hand, and the exceptional drapability/formability of the fabrics, which allows for forming over a shaped tool of complex shape, on the other. Both of these features follow from the interlooped nature of the reinforcing fibres/yarns which permits the fabric to have the stretchability to adapt to complex shapes without crimp.
  18. 18. Knitted fabric-reinforced composites However, the advantages which the knitted fibre architecture brings also lead to the disadvantages, which are the reduced in- plane stiffness and strength of the composites caused by the relatively poor use of the mechanical properties of the fibre (glass, carbon or aramid). The tensile and compressive properties of the knitted fabrics are poor in comparison with the other types of fabric. Hence both warp-knitted and weft-knitted reinforcements are under investigation.

  20. 20. Braided- reinforcement composites Braided textiles for composites consist of intertwined two (or more) sets of yarns, one set of yarns being the axial yarns. In two- dimensional braiding, the braided yarns are intertwining in 1 x 1 or 2 x 2patterns.
  21. 21. Braided- reinforcement composites
  22. 22. Braided- reinforcement composites
  23. 23. Braided- reinforcement composites The braided architecture enables the composite to endure twisting, shearing and impact better than woven fabrics. Combined with low cost fabrication routes, such as resin transfer moulding, braided reinforcements are expected to become competitor materials for many aerospace applications or automobile applications. A variety of shapes can be fabricated for composite applications from hollow tubular to solid sections. The mechanical properties of composites fabricated using braided reinforcement depend on the braid parameters (braid architecture, yarn size and spacing, fibre volume fraction) and the mechanical properties of fibre and matrix.
  24. 24. Stitched fabric- reinforcement composites Stitching of composites adds one further production step with the use of a sewing machine to introduce lock stitches through the full thickness of the laminate. The stitching can be performed on unimpregnated fibres or fibres in the prepreg form, although the latter is usually to be avoided owing to excessive fibre damage. Stitching in this way can be carried out with carbon, glass or aramid fibre yarns.

  35. 35. Expansion method In this process thin metal sheet is first cut into panels and strip bonded This process is referred to as the “honeycomb before expansion” or HOBE method. This can be cut and stretched perpendicular to the strip bonds to create a hexagonal structure. The expansion process requires moderately high inter-sheet bond strengths (sufficient to enable sheet stretching). For low density honeycombs with very thin webs
  36. 36. Corrugated method The process for forming a hexagonal honeycomb core; however this process may be used for numerous additional topologies including square and triangular shaped cells
