Tensile Properties of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer Matrix Composite
The paper deals with determination of material characteristics of carbon/epoxy composite due to numerical homogenization and experimental investigation. Within numerical homogenization there is used periodic microstructure model without and with pores. The numerical homogenization and simulation of experiment are provided in FEM program ANSYS. In this study, unidirectional quasi-static tensile test on carbon/epoxy composite laminate is carried out to investigate its material properties. The quasi-static tensile tests were conducted by INOVA FU 160 machine. The extensometer EPSILON 3542 was installed to measure the deformation of the specimen. The experiment was controlled also using video extensometer measuring system ARAMIS. The results obtained from numerical and experimental investigation were compared.
