Özet

In this study a novel reinforcing method was examined for glass-fiber reinforced composites consisted of inter-adherend glass fibers which acted as pins to pierce the composite adherend. Two types of inter-adherends were investigated. One of the types involved fibers which acted as pins (type B), and the other type was made up of pin like fibers with bent edges which stuck to the surface of the adherend (type C). Static tensile tests were performed on both types of single-lap joints (SLJ) and for joints without inter-adherend fibers (type A) at four different temperatures (20, 40, 60 and 80 degrees C) in accordance with ASTM standards. The results showed that the fibers improved the ultimate static strength of the single-lap joints over the entire temperature range. (C) Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden, 2012
