Measuring Viscoelastic Properties of Fiber-Reinforced Epoxy

When it comes to the characterization of fiber reinforced composites with dynamic measuring techniques many options are available, but they all have pros and cons for different materials and applications. In their paper, Huayamares et al. set out to answer some relevant questions by comparing measurements in 3-point bending and torsion mode. We summarize the main findings of the scientific paper and explain the measurements as well as the corresponding interpretation of the results depending on the use case.
