In the presented study, by applying analytical methods and using experimental data, equations are achieved to predict the fatigue life of unidirectional carbon fiber/epoxy composite (UCFEC) that is applied in aerospace structures. The experimental data used to obtain these equations are achieved by low earth orbit (LEO) environment simulation experiment and other experiments. By employing convex curves analytical... Read more.
The most important target of this study is to develop a method to compare the materials’ degradation due to thermal fatigue and temperature variation between the carbon nanotube wire and unidirectional carbon fiber/epoxy composite (UCFEC). In the presented study, by using experimental results data, thermal fatigue life of carbon nanotube wire and unidirectional carbon fiber/epoxy was compared after being exposed... Read more.
