Performance Drivers on Fatigue Properties of Glass Fiber Composites


Previously published work by the authors explored the effects of key performance drivers on fiber glass composites, namely filament diameter, linear density, and areal weight. The results of that work indicated that fatigue performance decreased with an increase in filament diameter.  Whether the decrease in fatigue performance can be directly attributed to the change in diameter or, rather, is a result of other factors such as fiber forming conditions (forming temperature, fiber drawing speed) is still contested in the literature.  This current work uses a series of designed experiments to systematically explore other variables including sizing content and fiber drying method as well as fiber diameter.  Results show that it is possible to significantly improve fatigue performance of a higher filament diameter glass fiber (24 µm) by increasing the sizing content and employing dielectric drying.
