In the rear wall crossmember, the fibers are aligned in one direction for maximum transverse strength, with up to 14 layers that form a 5-mm (0.
Fractures may occur during use because of unsatisfactory transverse strength, impact strength, and flexural resistance.
The transverse strength of fiber reinforced PMMA composite didn't show a significant increase which is due to fiber pull out, can be minimized with proper wetting agents.
The transverse strength is governed by many factors which include the properties of the fibre and matrix, the interface bond strength, the presence and distribution of voids, and the internal stress and strain distribution.
Additionally, the North American sand mixes were tested for transverse strength because of the prevalence of transverse rather than tensile testing in some regions.
Knitted reinforcements offer significant handling and performance advantages over woven fabrics or CSM, and are available in different orientations to provide optimum strength in the structure, for example triaxial (0/+/-45[degrees]) is ideal for applications that require a combination of high longitudinal and shear strength and stiffness> and some transverse strength.
Chee et al (10) found that pressure curing polymethyl methacrylates reduced porosity and increased transverse strength when compared with the technique of bench curing.
It was shown that the two stage hot compaction procedure, with a significantly higher initial contact pressure to restrain fiber shrinkage, can produce a homogeneous product with a longitudinal modulus similar to that of the melt spun fiber compacted material and transverse strength sufficient for useful applications.
The typical transverse strength for unidirectional E-glass reinforced/PPS composites with a fiber volume of 55% is 11.
Though often referred to as a "self-reinforcing" polymer, most material development efforts so far have concentrated on filled grades to minimize their anisotropic nature and improve transverse strength, reinforce weak weld lines, and also bring down the cost.
