Repair efficiency of resin infused scarf repair to marine sandwich structures

Palaniappan, J., Boyd, S.W., Shenoi, R.A. and Mawella, J. (2009) Repair efficiency of resin infused scarf repair to marine sandwich structures At 17th International conference on composite materials (ICCM 17). 27 - 31 Jul 2009.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


A vacuum-assisted resin infusion technique is used to repair the damaged skin and core of a GRP/Balsa sandwich. Flexural effectiveness of the repair both in tension and compression are evaluated for two repair configurations and repair systems. Prediction analyses were undertaken to study the failure mode and good experimental agreement was found.
