CTE and elastic modulus of epoxy resin and AS4 carbon fiber as a function of temperature

CTE and elastic modulus of epoxy resin and AS4 carbon fiber as a function of temperature

CTE and elastic modulus of epoxy resin and AS4 carbon fiber as a function of temperature

(OP)
Hello,
I am struggling to get data for the transverse CTE and modulus of AS4 carbon fibers and Hexcel 8552 epoxy resin as a function of temperature. Do you know where could I get such data?
Thanks for your answer.

RE: CTE and elastic modulus of epoxy resin and AS4 carbon fiber as a function of temperature

HS carbon/epoxy is about 30e-6 strain/°C across the fibres of a UD ply.

This is typically measured by companies qualifying material, and so is hard to find outside copyright.

Toray has a number for their T700 fibre at http://www.torayca.com/en/techref/index.html section 7 "Functional and Composite Properties". (37.5e-6/K.)

You might find something at the NIAR website http://www.niar.wichita.edu/agate/.

RE: CTE and elastic modulus of epoxy resin and AS4 carbon fiber as a function of temperature

Nothing at NIAR that I could spot (I was actually looking for some glass info so my eyes may not have been correctly attuned).

There's some numbers in this paper for carbon/PEEK. Looking at PEEK's properties the results won't be mile out from epoxy.

RE: CTE and elastic modulus of epoxy resin and AS4 carbon fiber as a function of temperature

Not really a sales pitch here, but we can do that experiment for you. What type of temperature range are you looking for? We perform CTE tests via a comparative strain gage technique from 4 K to 390K.

Research Report - How Engineers are Using Remote Access
Remote access enables engineers to work from anywhere provided they have an internet connection. We surveyed our audience of engineers, designers and product managers to learn how they use remote access within their organizations. We wanted to know which industries have adopted remote access, which software they are using, and what features matter most. Download Now
eBook - Managing the Context of Product Complexity Using the Digital Twin
Keeping track of changes to complex products is difficult—think Aerospace & Defense equipment, new generations of commercial aircraft, and software-based automobiles. A new way to managing the digital context of the physical product is required and the answer is the Digital Twin. This ebook explores the opportunity available for Operations and Maintenance for the Digital Twin. Download Now
White Paper - Trends in Industrial Filtration
Substantial progress has been made in filtration technologies in recent years. New filter media materials, designs and processes have led to filters that are more efficient, reliable, compact and longer lasting. This white paper will discuss the various trends that are impacting operational responsibilities of MROs today and the resources that are available for staying up-to-date on the latest filtration solutions.
