We devised a low velocity impact and compression after impact (CAI) experimental campaign, where quasi-static indentation (QSI) tests at increasing loading displacements gave insight into the damage initiation and growth. For impact and QSI, the damage area was inspected using C-scan and X-ray micro-computed tomography. We observed that the melting temperature of the co-polyamide fibres has a key role on the impact response of thin-ply NCFs. Veils that melt during manufacturing avoided resin accumulation at the interfaces, decreased the damage area by more than 100% for a 14 J impact and improved CAI strength by up to 28%" , "dc.description.sponsorship": "They would also like to acknowledge the support from the Spanish government through the Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad contract MAT2015-69491-C3-1-R" , "dc.format.mimetype": "application/pdf" , "dc.language.iso": "eng" , "dc.publisher": "Elsevier" , "dc.relation": "MINECO/PE 2016-2018/MAT2015-69491-C3-1-R" , "dc.relation.isformatof": "Versió preprint del document publicat a: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.compositesa.2018.01.023" , "dc.relation.ispartof": "© Composites Part A: Applied Science and Manufacturing, 2018, vol. 107, p. 409-420" , "dc.relation.ispartofseries": "Articles publicats (D-F)" , "dc.rights": "Tots els drets reservats" , "dc.subject": "Capes fines" , "dc.subject": "Thin films" , "dc.subject": "Resistència de materials" , "dc.subject": "Strength of materials" , "dc.title": "The effect interleaving has on thin-ply non-crimp fabric laminate impact response: X-ray tomography investigation" , "dc.type": "info:eu-repo/semantics/article" , "dc.rights.accessRights": "info:eu-repo/semantics/openAccess" , "dc.type.version": "info:eu-repo/semantics/submittedVersion" , "dc.identifier.doi": "https://doi.org/10.1016/j.compositesa.2018.01.023" , "dc.identifier.idgrec": "028705" , "dc.contributor.funder": "Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad (Espanya)" , "dc.type.peerreviewed": "peer-reviewed" }
