    Abstract

    The tensile properties of E-glass, which is the most popular reinforcement fiber in composite materials, were determined from the experimental results of fiber bundle testing under a high strain rate. The tests were performed by using two types of experimental methods. One is the tension-type split Hopkinson bar system and the other is the universal highspeed tensile-testing machine. In the results, it was demonstrated that the tensile strength and fracture strain of E-glass fiber increased with the strain rate. The absorbed strain energy, therefore, significantly increased. It was also shown that the strain rate dependency of E-glass fiber tensile strength was strongly affected by fiber diameter. The smaller diameter of E-glass fiber has the stronger strain rate dependency. Finally, the impact tensile strengths of high-strength glass and carbon fibers were investigated. It was confirmed that the tensile strength of the high-strength glass fiber also increased with the strain rate, but the tensile properties of carbon fiber were almost independent of the strain rate.
