Effect of fiber and resin types on mechanical properties of fiber-reinforced composite pipe

Gokce, Neslihan
Yılmazer, Ülkü
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of the types of fiber and resin on the mechanical properties of polyester composite pipes. Orthophthalic, isophthalic and vinyl ester resins were used as the matrix; E-glass, electrical/chemical resistance (ECR)-glass and basalt fibers were used as reinforcement; and 98% silica (SiO2) sand was used as filler in mixtures. Samples were produced by the centrifugal casting method. Samples cut from the produced pipes were tested to determine stiffness and longitudinal and circumferential tensile strength. It was found that mixtures with orthophthalic resin had the highest stiffness and mixtures with vinyl ester resin had the highest circumferential tensile strength. Samples containing basalt fibers showed 10.8% higher stiffness, the highest longitudinal tensile strength and 18.8% higher circumferential tensile strength compared with the mixture with E-glass fibers. Samples with ECR-glass fibers showed 20.2% higher longitudinal tensile strength and 5.9% higher circumferential tensile strength. The basalt-reinforced composite pipe had 2.6% less resin than the E-glass-fiber-reinforced pipe. As a result, the mechanical properties of the polyester composite pipes changed with different types of resin and fiber. Vinyl ester resin and basalt-fiber-reinforced pipes showed better mechanical performance than orthophthalic resin and E-glass-fiber-reinforced pipes. The fiber-matrix bonding surfaces were investigated by scanning electron microscopy.


Effect of Microstructure on the Mechanical Behavior of Reactive Magnetron Sputtered Al2O3/TiO2 Multilayer Ceramics
Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (Japan Institute of Metals, 2008-11-01)
Mechanical characteristics of reactive magnetron sputtered Al2O3-TiO2 multilayer ceramics were studied. Tailored mechanical properties such as moderately high hardness and reasonable toughness were achieved through varying sputtering process parameters resulting in microstructural control at nano-scale. Interchanging Al2O3 and TiO2 layers with a single layer thickness of similar to 65-70 nm were deposited on single crystal alumina (sapphire) substrates to form the multilayer structure composed of 10 layers....
Computation of Thermal Fracture Parameters for Inclined Cracks in Functionally Graded Materials Using Jk-Integral
Dağ, Serkan (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
This article describes the formulation and implementation of the Jk-integral for the analysis of inclined cracks located in functionally graded materials (FGMs) that are subjected to thermal stresses. The generalized definition of the Jk-integral over a vanishingly small curve at the tip of an inclined crack is converted to a domain independent form that consists of area and line integrals defined over finite domains. A numerical procedure based on the finite element method is then developed, which allows t...

AKSOY, FUNDA; AKGÜL, GÜVENÇ; Yıldırım, Nuray; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Turan, Raşit (Elsevier BV, 2014-10-15)
In this study, effect of the post-deposition thermal annealing on copper oxide thin films has been systemically investigated. The copper oxide thin films were chemically deposited on glass substrates by spin-coating. Samples were annealed in air at atmospheric pressure and at different temperatures ranging from 200 to 600 degrees C. The microstructural, morphological, optical properties and surface electronic structure of the thin films have been studied by diagnostic techniques such as X-ray diffraction (X...
Effect of tube spinning and subsequent heat treatments on strength, microstructure and residual stress state of AISI/SAE type 4140 steel
Gür, Cemil Hakan (Informa UK Limited, 2003-11-01)
In the present study, the effects of deformation percentage (23, 30, 50 and 66%) and subsequent stress relief and tempering heat treatments on the mechanical properties, residual stress state and microstructure of AISI/SAE type 4140 steel tubes manufactured by forward spinning were evaluated. Mechanical properties were determined by means of hardness and tensile tests. The tangential component of the surface residual stresses was determined by a slitting method. Plastic deformation of the metal during spinn...
Effects of CdCl2 treatment on properties of CdTe thin films grown by evaporation at low substrate temperatures
BACAKSIZ, EMİN; ALTUNBAŞ, MUSTAFA; Yflniaz, S.; Tornakin, M.; Parlak, Mehmet (Wiley, 2007-09-01)
The structural, morphological and optical properties of vacuum-evaporated CdTe thin films were investigated as a function of substrate temperature and post-deposition annealing without and with CdCl2/treatment at 400 degrees C for 30 min. Diffraction patterns are almost the same exhibiting higher preferential orientation corresponding to (111) plane of the cubic phase. The intensity of the (111) peak increased with the CdCl2/annealing treatment. The microstructure observed for all films following the CdCl2/...
