Abstract

The aim of this paper is to investigate the interfacial fracture properties of a novel fibre-metal laminate based on a unidirectional glass fibre reinforced polyamide 6,6 composite. Interfacial fracture tests using a modified single cantilever beam geometry have shown that good adhesion between the aluminium and glass fibre polyamide plies can be achieved using a simple stamping operation. Further testing has shown that the basic fracture properties of this system do not depend on the cooling rate employed during consolidation of the laminates.
