The figures in the right hand margin indicate marks. Q1 i) j) Answer the followings : Which metals are used as matrix material in material matrix composites? Why do we use composites? What are the properties of anisotropic materials ? Why Fillers are used in composites. Explain the meaning of Macromechanical Behaviour of composite materials. Is concrete a composite material ? Explain. In composite usually which is the softer constituent and which is the stronger constituent. What are the properties that make glass fibers an important reinforcement material for composites ? What is Critical Volume Fractions ? What is a antisymmetric laminates.. Q2 a) b) Classify composite materials based on reinforcing material structure. . Briefly describe about mechanical behaviour of composites (5) (5) Q3 a) b) Derive the stress – strain relationship for specially orthotropic lamina. An unidirectional composite is composed of 65% by volume of carbon fibers in a epoxy resin matrix. Calculate the longitudinal modulus of the composite. Eepoxy = 4 GPa and Ecarbon =240 GPa (5) (5) Briefly describe about different manufacturing procedures for fibre-reinforced plastics. (10) Find the relationship of Engineering Constants using Micromechanical principles. Find the transformation relationships for a lamina with 300 fibre orientation with 1 axis. (5) a) b) c) d) e) f) g) h) Q4 Q5 a) b) (2 x 10) (5) Q6 a) b) Briefly describe about different test methods for composites. Discuss about inter-laminar stress and edge effect in laminate. (5) (5) Q7 a) For a continuous and oriented fiber reinforced composite, the moduli of elasticity in the longitudinal and transverse directions are 3.2 × 104 MPa and (5) b) Q8 3.6 × 103 MPa, respectively. If the volume fraction of fibers is 0.2, determine the moduli of elasticity of fiber and matrix phases. Briefly describe about FRP Composite Laminate designation and codes.
