Lightweight Structures B.V.

In automobile industry there is an increasing interest in lighter and stronger materials. In addition, new materials are being developed with improved crash-resistant properties. This implies the high rate testing and measurement of fracture properties at high strain rates. A project has been carried out on two different composite materials. The materials consisted of fiber reinforced plastics with different fiber structures.

  • High strain rate tensile testing
  • High speed film analysis

The image sequence show a number of high speed film images from a tensile test on fiber reinforced plastic.
