The strain results are used for chord modulus and Poisson's ratio [10] calculations necessary to develop, integrate and implement predictive computational models for CFRPs composites linking the materials design, molding process and final performance requirements for optimal design and manufacturing of CFRP automotive systems.
From tensile tests, ultimate tensile strength, strain at maximum load (as defined in ISO 527-1 Standard) and tensile chord modulus of elasticity (Young's modulus) were calculated; a strain range of 0.
The most common tests for tensile strength (MPa or PSD are tensile chord modulus of elasticity (MPA or PSD, tensile strain (%), Poisson's ratio and transition strain (%).
