The tensile testing was done on the three composite specimens (90°, and two 45°) were completed with a servo-hydraulic load frame with a wedge. The one in the lab was an MTS 647 Hydraulic Wedge Grip and an 810 Material Test System. The specimens had strain gages with a Wheatstone bridge to collect data such as time, distance, load, axial strain, and transverse strain in volts which was converted into pounds per force (lbf), pressure (psi), and etc. for data analysis. From the strain gages, evidence can support how and when the specimen material failed under the stress being applied to the specimen. The test would extend (stretch) the specimen at a constant rate which created tension on the material and caused the material to fail at or close …show more content…
The first factor that was required to find the Laminate Material Strength Properties was to plot Stress vs Strain (Figure 5 (a)) to find ultimate tensile strength (σUTS) and the maximum load (Pmax). Then to find Major Young’s Modulus (Ex), from the axial strain from the Axil/Longitudinal direction, was found by two points that contain a stress value and that are between 1000 µƐ and under 3000 µƐ Corrected Longitudinal Strain. Data point values are used in Tensile Chord Modulus of Elasticity equation to find Major Young’s Modulus. These values are listed Table 1 and the Major Young’s Modulus region is shown in Figure 5 (b). The final strength property found was Poisson’s Ratio (νxy) which uses Transverse Strain direction which is perpendicular to the axial/longitudinal direction. The same data points from the Major Young’s Modulus were applied but used the corrected Longitudinal and Transverse Strain values. The plot used to find Poisson’s Ratio is negative Transverse Strain vs Longitudinal Strain (Figure 5 (c)) and the equation is from the Chord Method (Figure 5 (d)). The plots and material strength properties show a brittle fracture due to the linear slope of the graphs. The next specimen tested was the First ±45° Glass/ Epoxy Laminate Composite …show more content…
The tensile test failure code was AGM [2] and the specimen fracture was at a 45° angle same as the fiber alignment (Image 3). The second ±45° specimen follows the same guidelines of what data is discovered of the first ±45° specimen. The Laminate Strength properties are in Table 4 and the In-Plane Shear properties are in Table 5. The plot of Stress vs Strain is in Figure 8 (a) found the Major Young’s Modulus (Ex) region is in Figure 8 (b). The Poisson’s Ratio region is plotted in Figure 8 (d). The Lamina Shear Stress vs Lamina Shear Strain plot (Figure 9, graph a) was used to calculate the Lamina Shear Modulus (Figure 9 (b)). The type of fracture of this specimen was a brittle

    [2014] investigates the surface roughness during hard turning of EN24 of 50 HRC hardness with coated carbide insert. By using grey based Taguchi and regression analysis it was concluded that surface roughness of 0.42 micron is obtained at cutting speed of 130 m/min, depth of cut 0.4 mm/rev and feed rate was found to be most dominant parameters for output response. [14] A.K Sahoo et al. [2014] studied the performance of multilayer carbide insert in the machining of AISI D2 steel at 53 HRC using Taguchi L27 orthogonal array to predict surface roughness also S/N ratio and optimum parametric condition were analysed. He found that feed is most influencing parameter for surface roughness followed by cutting speed whereas depth of cut has least significance on surface response.…

    FRACTURE MECHANICS Failure can occur due to various reasons: Uncertainties in loading or environment Defects in material Inadequacy in design Deficiency in construction or maintenance The strength of materials can be increased significantly. But sometimes this comes at the cost of reduced ductility of the material. For example, strength of steel can be increased by manipulating the microstructure. But this increases the brittleness of the material. Thus, a member can fail catastrophically due to crack formation and propagation, with little or no warning.…

    The first setup was for CY4, CY9 and C4 with single steel loading plate. The second setup was for CY7, CY8 and C6 with double steel loading plate, as shown in figure (4.5) and (4.6). The results of E-modulus test (cylinder (CY5)) would give an indication of the validity of stress-strain results. It has been noticed from experimental data from figure (4.7) that the maximum stress increases from 16.0 MPa to 20.0 MPa in cube specimens and from 14.0 MPa to 18.0 MPa in cylinders specimens with overall 20% increase. The Young's modulus form first setup is 12500 MPa.…

    A load has to be applied to the specimen at the specific crosshead rate and may take simultaneous load-deflection data. Secant modulus or tangent modulus of elasticity, chord and the flexural strength can be determines by the load-deflection curves. To correct the necessary seating and identification of the specimen perform the toe compensation. When the maximum stain in the outer surface of the test specimen has reached to 0.05mm/mm the test should terminated or if the break occurs prior to achieve the maximum strain. The deflection can be calculated by- D=rL^2/6d, where D= midspan deflection, r= strain, L=support span, d=depth of the beam.…

    Abstract Thermo-mechanic treatment consists in utilization of two classic technological proceedings. This type of treatment was applied to the studied high-speed steel (HS2-9-1-8). The made tests wanted to establish the influence on the hardness and wear of the high-temperature thermo-mechanical treatment (HTTMT) applied to studied steel. The application of an additional plastic deformation (the deformation degree between 45 – 75%) influences positive the hardness and wear value. Being a HTTMT, the plastic deformation was fallowed by quenching, the utilized agent being the oil or compressed air.…

    For copper, the critical resolved shear stress is 2.10 MPa (305 psi) at a dislocation density of 105 mm-2. If it is known that the value of A for copper is 6.35 10-3 MPa-mm (0.92 psi-mm), compute the crss at a dislocation density of 107 mm-2. Solution We are asked in this problem to compute the critical resolved shear stress at a dislocation density of 107 mm-2. It is first necessary to compute the value of the constant 0 (in the equation provided in the problem statement) from the one set of data. Rearranging this expression such that 0is the dependent variable, and incorporating appropriate values given in the problem statement Now, the critical resolved shear stress may be determined at a dislocation density of 107 mm-2…

    The ideal gas law, PV=nRT, was a formula that determined the number of moles produced. Taking the Barometric pressure, 769.9mmHg, and subtracting it from the volume of water, 17.5 mmHg, can formulate the pressure. Since pressure is what’s needed, 752.4 had to be divided by 760 to be converted into atm creating 0.99atm. Then with plugging in the rest, using .0821 and (20+273), the number of moles can be found by getting n, moles, alone. The answer then is .0298 moles of gas produced.…
