Investigation of Composites, Pre-pregs, Epoxy Resins and Reinforced CFRP with High Force DMA

Presented by:
Dr. Horst Deckmann
Technical Director, NETZSCH GABO Instruments GmbH

Monday, February 22 9:30am
CCM Room 106

Dynamic thermal mechanical properties of high strength composites are gaining more interest in industrial research and scientific development all over the world. The composite’s stiffness is too high for conventional DMAs to apply large deformation. This problem disappears with a new DMA system operating with static and dynamic forces up to 8000 N. The technical design of this DMA will be presented as well as composite applications.
