Unformatted text preview: Chapter 12, Problem 20 A unidirectional carbon-fiber—epoxy-resin composite contains 68 percent by volume of carbon fiber and 32 percent epoxy resin. The density of the carbon fiber is 1.79 g."cl:n3 and that of the epoxy resin is 1.20 gfcrng. (a) What are the weight percentages of carbon fibers and epoxy resin in the composite? (b) What is the average density of the composite? Chapter 12, Solution 20 Applying a basis of 1 cm3 of composite material, we have 0.68 cm3 of carbon fiber and 0.32 cm3 of epoxy resin. (a) The weight percentages are based upon the individual and total mass of the components. Mass of carbon fiber = mcf = ,0”.ch = (1.79 g/cm3)(0.68 cms) =1.217 g Mass of epoxy resin = mgr = perVgr = (1.20 g/cm3)(0.32 cm3) = 0.384 g Total mass = 1.601 g Since we are dealing with a ratio of weights, the gravity terms cancel. Thus, (1.217 g) (1.601 g) (0.384 g) (1.601 g) Wt % carbon fibers = X 100% = 76.0% Wt % carbon fibers = X100% = 24.09/11 (b) The average density of the composite is: 1.601 g _ 3 3 — 1.60 gz'cm p_E_ c V 1cm Chapter 12, Problem 21 The average density of a carbon-fiber-epoxy composite is 1.615 g/cmg. The density of the epoxy resin is 1.21 gl’crn3 and that of the carbon fibers is 1.74 gfcmg. (a) What is the volume percentage of carbon fibers in the composite? (b) What are the weight percentages of epoxy resin and carbon fibers in the composite? Chapter 12, Solution 21 Using a basis ofl cms, the total mass ofthe composite is m = pV = (1.615 g/crn3)(l cm3) =1.615 g. (a) The volume percentages can be derived from the density equation. p =pch'cf-FperVigr lief-Flier 1.74 cus +1.21 cm3V 1_615g/cm3=( g/ M; (3 g/ )5.r 1cm 1.615 g =(1.74g/cm3)I/;f +(1.21 g/cm3)Vgr But ch = 1— P2,. Substituting, 1.615 g =(1.74g/cm3)(1—Vg,)+(1.21 g/cm3)V€r 0.125 =0.5317;r V2, = 0.236 and 1;). = 0.764 (b) The weight percentages are calculated based upon the masses. Mass of carbon fiber = mg, = pchCf = (1.74 g/cm3)(0.764 cm3) = 1.329 g Mass ofepoxy resin = m —mcf = 1.615 g —1.329 g = 0.286 g (1.329 g) (1.615 g) (0.286 g) (1.615 g) Wt % carbon fibers = X100% = 82.39/31 Wt % carbon fibers = x100% = 17.7%} Chapter 12, Problem 23 Calculate the tensile modulus of elasticity of a unidirectional carbon-fiber—reinforced—plastic composite material that contains 64 percent by volume of carbon fibers and is stressed under isostrain conditions. The carbon fibers have a tensile modulus of elasticity of 54.0 X 10‘5 psi and the epoxy matrix a tensile modulus of elasticity of 0.530 X 10‘5 psi. Chapter 12, Solution 23 E6 = 13fo +5me = (54.0><106 psi)(0.64)+(0.53><106 psi)(0.36) = 34.75 X 10‘5 psi = 239.6 GPa Chapter 12, Problem 24 If the tensile strength of the carbon fibers of the 64 percent carbon-fiber—epoxy composite material of Prob. 12.23 is 0.31 X 106 psi and that of the epoxy resin is 9.20 X 103 psi, calculate the strength of the composite material in psi. \Vhat fiaction of the load is carried by the carbon fibers? Chapter 12, Solution 24 The strength of the composite material, using 7/, = 1 as a basis, is 0'ch = 0'fo + 0'me a, (1) = (0.31x106 psi)(0.64) + (9.2cux103 psi)(0.36) a, = 2.02 x 105 psi = 1.39 GPa The fraction of the load carried by the carbon fibers is: Pf = 13fo = (54.0mm6 psi)(0.64) P £ch (34.75x1o6 psi)(l.0) C = 0.995 Chapter 12, Problem 25 Calculate the tensile modulus of elasticity of a unidirectional Kevlar 49-fiber—epoxy composite material that contains 63 percent by volume of Kevlar 49 fibers and is stressed under isostrain conditions. The Kevlar 49 fibers have a tensile modulus of elasticity of 27. 5 X 10‘5 psi and the epoxy matrix a tensile modulus of elasticity of 0.550 X 10IS psi. Chapter 12, Solution 25 E, = .13fo +3me = (27.5x106 psi)(0.63)+(0.55><106 psi)(o.37) = 17.53 X 106 psi = 120-9 GPa Chapter 12, Problem 26 If the tensile strength of the Kevlar 49 fibers is 0.550 X 106 psi and that of the epoxy resin is 11.0 X 103 psi, calculate the strength of the composite material of Prob. 11.25. What fraction of the load is carried by the Kevlar 49 fibers?

    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.
