Composites on the Move

Composites are now a broad and well-established family of materials, but industry press releases frequently discuss “new and exciting” developments and opportunities. It should be remembered that there has been a commercial market in high performance, structural composites for well over 30 years, and European automotive manufacturers have made considerable use of lower performance glass fiber reinforced polyester (GFRP) bodywork since the 1950s.

Backward Strain at Yield — Discontinuous Yielding/YPE Material

During a recent customer visit, a concern was raised about a turnaround point on the graph that they had not previously seen. Following a bit of investigation, the customer was producing galvanized steel of various grades, some of which was aged.
