carbon fibre pressure vessel

A pressure vessel built of carbon fiber is referred to as a carbon fibre pressure vessel. Compared to other forms of pressure vessels, this type has a number of benefits.

Physical properties of carbon fibre pressure vessels

carbon fiber pressure vessels characteristics have been researched for many years. The NASA Lewis Research Center has extensive knowledge of pressure vessels made of glass-fiber composite with metal linings. Additionally, it has been demonstrated that combining the two offers considerable benefits over metal-based systems.

The resultant pressure and temperature conditions are the most important factor. In specifically, an aramid fiber and epoxy composite's interlaminar shear strength increased by about 8%. The composite's tensile strength, however, was quite underwhelming. Aluminum and copper alloying turned out to be a successful alloying strategy.

Another noteworthy enhancement was the enhanced seal performance attributable to the EB weld, a straightforward design adjustment necessary to realize a double pressure tank. Of course, there were some difficulties with this. A high pressure coolant leak via the space between the IPS head and the vessel itself was one of the more minor worries.

Overall, compared to base metal, the mechanical and thermal properties of the metal matrix composite material exhibited a significant improvement. Although not entirely unexpected, the results were impressive. For instance, an enhanced hardness rating of about a tenth of its non-alloyed form was achieved with an alloying solution of copper and aluminum at a weight percentage of 4 (weight%). An exceptional coating technique made of epoxy resin completed this combination.
