© 2016 Institution of Mechanical Engineers. The use of light composites when designing fast moving parts for machine tools is emerging as a very efficient solution for improving productivity. Nevertheless, several aspects of these materials have to b... Read More about Effect of PVDF nanofibers on the fracture behavior of composite laminates for high-speed woodworking machines.

Detection of fibre fracture and ply fragmentation in thin-ply UD carbon/glass hybrid laminates using acoustic emission (2016)
Journal Article
Fotouhi, M., Suwarta, P., Jalalvand, M., Czel, G., & Wisnom, M. R. (2016). Detection of fibre fracture and ply fragmentation in thin-ply UD carbon/glass hybrid laminates using acoustic emission.

© 2016 The Authors. This paper investigates the link between acoustic emission (AE) events and the corresponding damage modes in thin-ply UD carbon/glass hybrid laminates under tensile loading. A novel configuration was investigated which has not pre... Read More about Detection of fibre fracture and ply fragmentation in thin-ply UD carbon/glass hybrid laminates using acoustic emission.
