Application of 3D computed microtomography for investigating the microstructural defects of carbon fiber reinforced composite made by 3D-printing

Abstract

The microstructural defect of additive manufactured 3-component carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites has been studied using the computed microtomography. The samples have been prepared using a 3D-printing process developed at Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, Russia. The research procedure has been described and internal defects of the fiber composite material have been detected and analyzed using a 3D image reconstructed from a number of cross section views. The defects larger 50 μm have been detected using the computed microtomography test. Defect-free images and defects typical for this type of composites such as delamination in polymer matrix and between fibers in a bundle, fiber breakage have been obtained.
