Evaluation of hybridization effect on static and dynamic properties of the thermoplastic-based hybrid composites-an experimental study

Chitturi Sai Krishna, A. A. Shaikh, Alpesh Makwana
The paper delineates the effects of reinforcement types and their amalgamation on static and dynamic properties of hybrid composite laminates. Hybrid composites are prepared by E-Glass, Twaron fabrics and polycarbonate sheets reinforced in epoxy matrix. Dynamic impact resistance and damage mechanisms are studied using load-deformation-energy-time graphs. The addition of polycarbonate sheet has increased strain to failure and toughness of hybrid composites than its pure counterparts. The tensile, interlaminar, flexural properties of hybrid composites provided a compatible performance and can be incorporated for structural and defense applications. Hybridization has provided a reduction in density about 10–14% with substantial enhancement of impact damage tolerance.
