Engineering properties of composite material CFRP

Engineering properties of composite material CFRP

Engineering properties of composite material CFRP


I am looking for the Engineering properties (E1, E2, E3,,,G12, G13, G23,) of CFRP Laminates of E1 around (+/- 10%) 200GPa.
You may suggest a Material database website or Mat library built-in software or from your experiences, if you run into a paper used such material.

thickness=1.4mm, E1>200GPa, Ultimate tenisle strength 2400-2600Mpa , elongation =1.3%

I am searching the literature but I have not had luck yet.
Is there a way to search the database of the specific journal website
I posted here as I feel you mostly need these properties when you conduct Numerical analysis. I check the material forum and found such questions have not been answered.


RE: Engineering properties of composite material CFRP

I would think the properties would vary for every supplier.

RE: Engineering properties of composite material CFRP

Most material supliers post datasheets with basic properties on their web sites.

RE: Engineering properties of composite material CFRP

I have seen that type of data in design manuals. But I would contact i material supplier.

It is also a question of how you intend to use the data. FRP is a "built-up" material with layers. The orientation of the layers is an important factor. Perhaps you only intend to use a single layer.

I would start with Google smile

Good Luck

eBook - Rethink Your PLM
A lot has changed since the 90s. You don't surf the Web using dial-up anymore, so why are you still using a legacy PLM solution that's blocking your ability to innovate? To develop and launch products today, you need a flexible, cloud-based PLM, not a solution that's stuck in the past. Download Now
White Paper - Using Virtualization for IVI and AUTOSAR Consolidation on an ECU
Current approaches used to tackle the complexities of a vehicle’s electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture are both cost prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running on the same hardware. Download Now
