Abstract [en]

Effect of degree of cure on irreversible (viscoplastic) shear strain development in layers of glass fibre/ epoxy resin (LY5052 epoxy resin) [+45 °/−45 °]s laminate is studied performing a sequence of constant stress creep and viscoelastic strain recovery tests. For fixed values of degree of cure in range from 79.7% to 100%, the viscoplastic strains were measured as dependent on time and stress and Zapa's integral representation was used to characterize the observed behaviour. It is shown that at all degrees of cure the viscoplastic behaviour can be described by Zapa's model with parameters dependent on degree of cure. It is shown that for degree of cure lower than 80% the viscoplastic strains grow much faster and are much more sensitive to the increase of the applied shear stress. These irreversible strains developing in the final phase of the curing can significantly alter the residual stress state in the composite structure.
