Abstract

The creep behavior of woven fiber polymer composites has been investigated through experimental analysis and analytical modeling. The fiber undulation model developed for the elastic behavior of woven fiber composites has been extended to the viscoelastic system by the correspondence principle. The resultant model takes into account the different parameters associated with the weave, volume concentration of the fiber and matrix in the composite, elastic moduli of the fill and warp fibers and the viscoelastic properties of the polymer matrix. On the other hand, creep tests were conducted on graphite fiber/epoxy composites to validate the model.
