Tensile and fracture properties of epoxy resin filled with flyash particles

Abstract

The ultimate tensile strength, modulus of elasticity and fracture properties of epoxy resin filled with flyash particles have been evaluated by the tensile test. The tensile strength of epoxy resin filled with flyash particles decreases the fracture properties and the modulus of elasticity increases with increasing percentage of flyash. It is advisable to use flyash when the void formation cannot be controlled effectively.
