Abstract

Our recent studies1,2 demonstrate that application of an electric current to carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) matrix composites may lead to an increase in the maximum impact load and reduction of the impact damage, whereas a prolonged application of the current has a rather detrimental effect due to current induced heating. In this paper we discuss thermal effects in electrified composites due to applied electric current. In particular, electric induced heating and thermoelastic deformation of electrified carbon fiber polymer matrix composite plates are investigated.
