"Mechanical Characterization of Epoxy based Composites for Low Weight and High Strength Applications in Missile Frame Structures" International Journal of Advanced Materials Manufacturing and Characterization, Vol 3 Issue 1 Pg 355-358, published along with C. Venkateshwar Reddy.
The paper aims to study the fiber volume fraction of the composites with effective consolidation (low thickness) of layers by applying vacuum and pressure during curing of the laminate. Analyzed mechanical properties like tensile, flexural and inter laminar shear strength for carbon-epoxy (LY556+HT972), bi-directional composites with different process parameters to fiber volume fraction with low thickness. The results from the study have demonstrated that the composites cured with vacuum and pressure is exhibiting improvement in tensile strength, flexural strength due to high fiber volume fraction.
