Abstract

Combination of the well-known rule of mixt. and the classical theory of linear viscoelasticity leads to a stress-strain relation that effectively predicts the viscoelastic behavior of hybrid composites in uniaxial extension. The stress-strain relation is exptl. verified under isothermal conditions for an unidirectional hybrid system high-performance polyethylene fiber/aramid/epoxy composite in dynamic forced vibration expts. The micromech. model leads to numerical predictions which are in good agreement with exptl. data on composites with various compns.
