Özet

This paper addresses the effects of different stacking sequences and seawater on the buckling behavior of hybrid composite plates. For the buckling tests, 12-layered hybrid composite plates were produced using different combinations of carbon, E-glass and aramid fibers, with an epoxy resin system as the matrix (Araldite LY1564/Aradur 3486). The hybrid composite plates were designed at the symmetric orientation angles of [(0/90)(3)](s), [(30/-60)(3)](s), [(45/-45)(3)](s) and an anti-symmetric orientation angle of [(0/90)(3)](2). The hybrid composite samples were divided into groups and were subjected to buckling tests after being kept in different settings for varying periods of time (room temperature for 90 days, Black Sea water for 90 days, Mediterranean Sea water for 90 days, Mediterranean Sea water for 150 days). In light of the data obtained from the tests, the buckling behaviors of the layered hybrid composite plates were examined. The highest critical buckling load occurred in the carbon/aramid/glass (CAG) hybrid samples with the stacking sequence of [(0/90)(3)](s), whereas the lowest critical buckling load occurred in the carbon/aramid/glass (CAG(45)) hybrid samples with the stacking sequence of [(45/-45)(3)](s). It was observed that the critical buckling loads of the samples immersed in seawater decreased when compared to the critical buckling loads of the samples kept at room temperature. It was also found that the critical buckling loads of the hybrid samples immersed in the Mediterranean Sea water, which has high salinity, were lower than the critical buckling loads of the hybrid samples immersed in the Black Sea water, which has lower salinity.
