Abstract

Experimental results suggest that exposure of composite materials to the electromagnetic field leads to increase in the material's strength and impact resistance to delamination. The factors contributing to this phenomenon are related to deformation of composites due to coupling of mechanical and electromagnetic fields and/or changes in the material properties associated with microscopic processes resulted from the application of an electromagnetic field to the composite material (Joule heating effects, fiber-matrix interface changes). As a step to building a comprehensive model involving all these factors, in this work an analysis of impacted composite plates in the presence of the electromagnetic load is presented.
