Paper Abstract

The incorporation of 0.1 - 0.2 micrometer diameter carbon filaments (0.6 vol.%) between continuous carbon fiber (7 micrometer diameter, 56.5 vol.%) layers in an epoxy-matrix composite during composite fabrication was found, under flexure to greatly increase transverse and longitudinal tan (delta) values, increase the storage modulus in the transverse direction, slightly decrease the storage modulus in the longitudinal direction, and increase both longitudinal and transverse loss moduli to values as high as 2 GPa.
