Fiber Composite Article Review

tests facilitated obtainment of the modulus of elasticity via application of linear regression to what the authors noted as linear domain of experimental stress-strain curve. The bending tests saw experimentation on 5 specimens using the three-point bending with the final section detailing Rockwell hardness tests. The results sections showed varied results beginning with the moisture absorption test which saw a steady state after forty days. The tension test saw results involving brittle fracture that demonstrated linear behavior until failure. The compression test revealed delimitation of all five specimens at adjacent surface of both the flax and glass plies. The… Continue Reading...

The Hypothetical Case Of the Nacirema
