XI. Structural Composite Systems (cont’d) E. Graphite (Thornel)-Epoxy The graphite fiber Thornel (original trade-name of Union Carbide Corporation) has often been combined with epoxy to form a structural composite. Table 17 contains the mechanical properties of T-300 Thornel fibers in 5208 epoxy resin. The unidirectional laminates were prepared from 3-inch prepreg tape.

XI. Structural Composite Systems (cont’d) F. Borsic-Aluminum and -Titanium Composites Silicon carbide (SiC) coated boron fibers ( Borsic ) are used to reinforce aluminum and titanium metal matrices. As with most composites, mechanical properties of Borsic fiber reinforced materials depend on relative fiber content . Table 18 shows the strength and moduli of Borsic-reinforced 6061 aluminum at 30% and 75% fiber content.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
