EXERCISE 1: COMPOSITE PLATE


BDA 40303

Dr. Izzuddin Zaman

A material sample of thin structure (1.2mm thickness) consist of three layers. All layers are made of the same matrix with different fiber orientation.

The fiber of the first layer is oriented 90 angle with the matrix longitudinal (x) direction, whereas the second and the third layers are oriented at 60 and 0, respectively.

EXERCISE 1: COMPOSITE PLATE (CONT.)


BDA 40303

The modulus elasticity of FIBER in longitudinal direction (axial direction) is EL = 2x105 N/mm2 and in transverse direction is ET = 1x105 N/mm2.
The shear modulus of the fiber is G = 2.5x105 N/mm2 and has a Poissons ratio of, v = 0.1.

Dr. Izzuddin Zaman

The modulus elastic of MATRIX in longitudinal direction EL = 5x104 N/mm2 , ET = 5x104 N/mm2,G = 7x104 N/mm2 and v = 0.3.
The shear flexibility of the composite G44 = 23 N/mm2 and G55 = 23 N/mm2. The volume ratio of fiber to the structure (fiber and matrix) is 0.5. The dimension of the specimen is 50mm 20mm (See next figure Edge AD is complete fixed and at edge BC, longitudinal loads (x direction) are applied 1000N.

TASK 3: COMPOSITE PLATES


BDA 40303

Students are requested to do investigation to find the best fiber orientation configuration of the composite structure with reinforced fiber by employing LISA.

Dr. Izzuddin Zaman

The specimen to investigate is similar with that of previous exercises. 1. Find the best configuration for longitudinal loading 2. Find the best configuration for bending loading
The configuration of the fiber orientation is listed in Table below
