Keywords: glass woven-epoxy composite material; tension test; low temperature test; micromechanical analysis
The aim of this paper was to present the determination of tensile strength Rm and modulus of elasticity Et of glass-epoxy composites at two different temperatures (at room temperature t=20°C, and at t =-50°C). Standard mechanical testing was carried out on glass woven-epoxy composite material with different structures (two specific weights of reinforcement, 210 g/m2 and 550 g/m2) and orientations (0°/90° and ±45°). Micromechanical analysis of failure was performed on a stereo microscope and SEM in order to determine real models and mechanisms of crack.
