Question: to design a composite with a youngs modulus of 180...

Question details

To design a composite with a Youngs modulus of 180 GPa in the longitudinal direction using a polymer matrix and carbon fibre (materials properties are given in table QB.2) Determine the volume fraction of aligned fibre required. Calculate the Youngs modulus of this composite in transverse direction and the average density of this composite. [10marks] (3) If a tensile load of 1500 N is applied to the longitudinal (axial) direction of the composite in B.2(2), how much force will be carried by the fibres? How much force will be carried (8marks by polymer?
