Accoustic Studies of Composite-Material Interfaces

Abstract

We review six recent acoustic studies of composite-material interfaces. Measured physical properties are either elastic constants (sound velocities resonance frequencies) or internal frictions. The materials considered include (1) glass fiber/epoxy, (2) silicon-carbide-fiber/titanium, (3) graphite- fiber/aluminum, (4) diamond-particle/copper, (5) alumina-platelet/ mullite, (6)graphite-epoxy/aluminum laminate. we emphasize the need to combine measurements with solid-mechanics modeling.
