In-plane and out-of-plane characterization of a 3D angle interlock textile composite
The present work focuses on the characterization of the in-plane and out-of-plane behavior of a three-dimensional angle-interlock woven composite. In-plane tensile and compression tests, short beam shear tests and through-the-thickness compressive tests were carried out to assess the mechanical behavior of the composite material. The results are presented in terms of stressâstrain responses, elastic moduli, failure strains and strengths. In addition, the material elastic properties were measured using an ultrasonic method. Results are compared with the values of the elastic properties determined by mechanical testing. A good correlation is observed which demonstrates the pertinence of this technique to measure in particular the through-thickness elastic properties of the material.
