Experimental Investigation of Low Velocity Impact on Hybrid Composite
Divyank Dubey | Dharamvir Mangal
Abstract: The effect on the reinforced material was considered experimentally under low velocity impact test as well as hardness test. The used material is an Intraply Hybrid Composite of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, nylon-6, 6, and Carbon Fiber. Experimental test were performed as per ASTM guidelines using falling weight impact testing machine instrument. In order to maximize the output of the Current work, studies were done on various combinations of ply arrangements. Impact test were led to describe the type and extent of damage observed in laminate of 13.26 mm thick plate subjected to different impact energies. Penetration vs impact energy and % deformation vs impact energy curves were extracted from the experimental data. The delamination due to impact and permanent indentation deformation were precisely caught. Hence, it is observed that the values of impact resistance and hardness of the Specimen A is higher than the Specimen B.
