Abstract

Carbon fibers were pretreated by ultrasonic agitation and then were used to manufacture carbon fiber-reinforced wood composites (CFRWCs) . The modulus of rupture (MOR) and the modulus of elasticity (MOE) for the CFRWCs were measured. The effects of the compounding pattern and proportion of carbon fiber on the dynamic performance were investigated by dynamic thermomechanical analysis (DMA) and finite element analysis (FEA). Finite element modeling was performed to simulate composite dynamic analysis using ANSYS commercial software. DMA results showed that the critical parameters for the mixed boards appeared to initially increase and then decrease as the content of carbon fiber increased. ANSYS simulations showed that the first-order natural frequency increased for single-sided and two-sided boards as the composite’s carbon fiber content increased, whereas it initially increased and then decreased for mixed boards. In general, the mixed board with 20 wt.% carbon fiber had maximum dynamic performances. ANSYS simulation results were very close to those of the static test, which demonstrated that the finite element model was accurate.
