Abstract:

A shear thickening fluid (STF) was prepared successfully and its rheological behavior was investigated. Glass fabrics were soaked in STF/ethanol solution to prepare STF-glass fabric composites. The morphologies of the STF-glass fabric composites were observed by SEM. Quasi-static stab-resistant tests were carried out on both the neat glass fabrics and STF-glass fabric composites using a knife based on the areal density. The corresponding puncture and strengthen mechanisms were also investigated.
