Main Question or Discussion Point
Hey there, my honours year thesis is on the design and analysis of a carbon fibre wheel for a Formula Student racecar. However, I am unable to obtain carbon fibre material properties to input into the Engineering Data section. I am required to specify the Youngs Modulus in the x, y and z directions and the Poisson's Ratio and Shear Modulus in the XY, YZ and XZ directions. However, I cannot find any data for carbon fibre that specifies these properties in each direction - all I can find is a single tensile modulus value for the fibre. Does anyone know how to find these properties in each direction for carbon fibre?
