Temperature-induced shape memory characteristics of epoxy resin-based fabric-reinforced composites

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Shape memory characteristics of woven glass and carbon fiber fabric reinforced epoxy resin-based composites were assessed in bending mode using a dynamic mechanical analyzer. The reinforcement strongly improved the recovery stress but impaired the bending deformability. Composites with asymmetric fabric lay-up showed better performance when the reinforced section experienced local tension than compression during flexural loading.
