%X In rapid industrial development, the demand for
high-strength and lightweight materials have been increased. Thus,
various CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics) with composite
materials are being used. The design variables of CFRP are its
lamination direction, order and thickness. Thus, the hardness and
strength of CFRP depends much on their design variables. In this
paper, the lamination direction of CFRP was used to produce a
symmetrical ply [0°/0°, -15°/+15°, -30°/+30°, -45°/+45°, -60°/+60°,
-75°/+75° and 90°/90°] and an asymmetrical ply [0°/15°, 0°/30°,
0°/45°, 0°/60° 0°/75° and 0°/90°]. The bending flexure stress of the
CFRP specimen was evaluated through a bending test. Its thermal
property was measured using an infrared camera. The symmetrical
specimen and the asymmetrical specimen were analyzed. The results
showed that the asymmetrical specimen increased the bending loads
according to the increase in the orientation angle; and from 0°, the
symmetrical specimen showed a tendency opposite the asymmetrical
tendency because the tensile force of fiber differs at the vertical
direction of its load. Also, the infrared camera showed that the thermal
property had a trend similar to that of the mechanical properties.
