Fabrication of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) & Comparing Experimental Result (Tensile & Bending) of CFRP (Unidirectional & Bidirectional) With Aluminum (Al7075)
An application field for carbon fibers gaining more and more in importance is composite technology. The combination of reinforcing fibers and a polymer matrix leads to CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced polymer) which is having high performance material allowing weight reduction of more than 20% compared to aluminum and more than 50% compared to steel, and also much stronger and stiffer compared to glass fibers. With the advancement and continuing integration of composite materials and technology in today’s modern industries, research in this field is becoming more and more significant. Predicting these composite materials properties and how they will react under trauma over the time is one of the most critical aspects that researchers are striving to understand and expand knowledge in. This project deals with tensile strength, bending stress and characteristics of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (unidirectional and bidirectional) and comparing experimental result with aluminum alloy (AL7075).
