Visualization of Progress of Internal Damage in Carbon Fiber Composite Materials and Mechanism of Impact Strength

Fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) have higher mechanical properties per unit weight than metal materials such as steel and aluminum and therefore are used now as substitute materials for metals in a variety of industrial products. Particularly in recent years, high quality carbon fibers, resin-impregnated prepregs containing those fibers, and advanced molding technologies have been developed. As a result, FRP has now gained wide acceptance and has an extensive record of actual use, and is also beginning to be used in main structural parts of aircraft and automobiles, in which high reliability is essential.
