Description

Determination of content and distribution of porosity introduced in composites during fabrication, is an important issue in characterizing composite materials, especially thick ones. Dispersed or discrete elongated pores, located at the fiber-matrix or ply interfaces, can act as nuclei of further damage growth during loading of the composite laminate.

Determination of content and distribution of porosity introduced in composites during fabrication, is an important issue in characterizing composite materials, especially thick ones. Dispersed or discrete elongated pores, located at the fiber-matrix or ply interfaces, can act as nuclei of further damage growth during loading of the composite laminate.
