Abstract

© 2015 Society of Plastics Engineers Experimental studies are presented on the quasi-static shear plugging behavior of nanoparticle dispersed materials viz symmetric balanced cross-ply laminates made using unidirectional E-glass fabric with epoxy resin, and neat epoxy resin. The nanoparticles used are nanosilica and multiwalled carbon nanotube for E-glass/epoxy and nanosilica for epoxy resin. The effect of nanoparticle dispersion on shear plugging strength was evaluated. Shear plugging strength was enhanced up to 10.5% for E-glass/epoxy and up to 17.0% for neat epoxy resin on addition of nanoparticles. Shear plugging strength of nanoparticle dispersed composites decreased with an increase in specimen thickness. POLYM. COMPOS., 37:3411–3415, 2016. © 2015 Society of Plastics Engineers.
