The impact properties of continuous unidirectional UHMWPE fibre-reinforced polyester resin composites have been investigated, to elucidate the effects of prestress on energy absorption characteristics. Prestress within composite samples was produced... Read More about UHMWPE fibre-based composites : prestress-induced enhancement of impact properties.
