Experimental and Numerical Investigations of the Deformation and Fracture Behavior of High-Grade-Steel Textile Reinforced Polymers and LFRT-Materials

The tensile fracture surfaces of high-grade steel textile reinforced polymers and composites had been inspected via SEM and light microscopy to gather information about the fracture behavior of these novel materials. In contrast to the ductile metal textile reinforcement, the polypropylene matrix (PP) and its long glass fiber reinforced version (LFRT) underwent brittle fracture. Poor bonding between steel and matrix polymer became evident. The damage processes and the fracture behavior of these novel composite materials have been studied and discussed. Furthermore, the fracture behavior of a spot-welded high-grade steel mesh reinforced PP was investigated by micromechanical finite element analysis.
