Interfacial properties of fibre-reinforced composites

Abstract

Factors which control the strength and toughness of a fibre-reinforced composite in terms of the role of interfacial parameters such as the interfacial shear strength, the interfacial coefficient of friction and the matrix shrinkage pressure are reviewed. Techniques for determining the interfacial parameters, the stress distribution along the embedded fibre, and the mode of failure of the pull-out tests utilized in these techniques are considered.
