A Novel Micro-Robotic Approach to Study the Environmental Degradation of Matrix and Fibre Materials
This study demonstrates a new micro-robotic characterization platform which is used to determine the environmental degradation of matrix and fibre materials. The major advantage of the introduced system is its capability to manipulate and characterise individual fibres with a significantly higher throughput than what is in the reach of conventional methods. Polyamide represents the matrix materials and glass and carbon fibres the reinforcements.
