Abstract
The aim of this paper is to study the tensile behavior of basalt fiber reinforced epoxy composites at high strain rates. Reference quasi-static tensile experiments were carried out at strain rates of 0.003 and 0.03 s-1, while high strain rate experiments were performed using the split Hopkinson tensile bar technique at a strain rate of 130 s-1. The digital image correlation technique was used to measure the full strain fields on the surface of the samples for both quasi-static and high strain rate experiments. Results showed that the tested basalt/epoxy composite is strain rate sensitive in both the warp and the fill directions. With the increase in strain rates, the maximum strength increased by up to 35% of its low strain rate value, and the maximum strain increased by up to 41% of its low strain rate value. Analysis of full strain fields indicated that homogenous strains were developed within the gauge section during the progression of the tests.
