Abstract
This manuscript describes an experimental study of both the Mode I and Mode II interlaminar behaviour of a 5-harness satin weave carbon fabric reinforced polyphenylene sulphide (PPS). The mode I crack growth is assessed using the Double Cantilever Beam (DCB) setup and an unstable crack-growth was seen resulting in a saw-tooth like force-displacement curve. Therefore, a model based on Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics was considered to determine GIC. The mode II behaviour was studied by the End Notch Flexure (ENF) test where stable crack propagation occurred and the Compliance-Based Beam Method was used to determine the corresponding fracture toughness. As the material showed a peculiar crack growth, especially under Mode I, visual microscopy and ultrasonic C-scans were used to visualise the crack. It could be concluded that the considered approach worked well for this material and reproducible results and values were found.
