Abstract

The mode-I interlaminar fracture toughness of flax, glass and hybrid flax-glass fibre woven composites was studied by using a DCB test. The acoustic emission signals recorded during the tests and scanning electron microscope images were used to analyse the damage mechanism of each composite. The crack initiation for the flax-fibre laminate needs the highest energy (1079 versus 945 for hybrid flax-glass fibre and 923 J/m2 for glass-fibre laminates). The morphology of the flax fibres, short and bonded together in bundles to manufacture the twill fabric, allows the creation of a larger amount of fibre bridging as the origin of this highest energy. Furthermore, hybridisation of glass fibres with flax fibres in an appropriate combination offers an interesting solution when the toughness of glass fibre composites needs to be increased. More interesting is the considerable advantage of the composite structure weight reduction due to the low flax fibre density.
