Failure sequences of carbon fiber specimens!

Failure sequences of carbon fiber specimens!

Let's talk about the failure sequence of carbon fiber specimens! The article ''Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer and Epoxy Adhesive Tensile Test Failure Analysis Using Scanning Electron Microscopy'' has many interesting pictures! Morphological characteristics analysis...

F1 Helmets

F1 Helmets

It's safe to say that the leather caps and googles use during the '50s are long gone! During the end of the '60s, the first helmets made of a composite material (in this case, fiberglass) were already being developed. But what are F1 helmets made of today?...

Braiding 

Braiding 

In braiding, a mandrel is fed through the center of the machine at a uniform rate and fiber yarns from moving carriers on the machine braid over the mandrel at a controlled rate. The carriers work in pairs to accomplish an over/under braiding sequence. Two or more...
