Strength of short fiber composite materials

Study period:1981 - 2000

Research overview:
Two types of composites are focused on, namely Sheet Molding Compounds which are expected to be widely used in automobile industries and Short Fiber Reinforced Metals which have potential formability. Those mechanical characteristics such as strength, fracture mode, crack propagation velocity, and effects of volume fraction, fiber orientation distribution and material constants of components on them are investigated analytically and experimentally with the use of fracture mechanics.
