Abstract

In the present study, the effects of different types of fibers on the strength and failure Mechanism of quasi-isotropic silicon carbide/epoxy composite laminate with reinforced hole has been carried out experimentally. The composite panels under compression loadings have been investigated In order to verify the experimental results were compared with the finite element method. A rectangular element with nine nodes has been chosen. Composite plate is meshed into 64 elements and 288 nodes with simply supported and in-plane loading conditions. Two types of reinforcement boundary conditions were investigated; adhesive bonded and snug-fit unbounded plug. For each case, five different sizes of hole diameter were used. And also three different types of reinforcing material (steel, aluminum and Eglass) were employed.
