Single Fiber Composites: A New Methodology for Determining Interfacial Shear Strength
Gale A. Holmes, Donald L. Hunston, Walter G. McDonough, R C. Peterson
One of the critical factors controlling the long-term performance and durability of composites in structural applications is the interfacial shear strength (IFSS). The single fiber composite (SFC) test has been viewed by many as the best test for determining this parameter. Although the SFC test has been extensively researched, the micro-mechanics models used to obtain IFSS values are based on simplifying assumptions that are not realized under experimental conditions. Thus, results from this test often violate the known strength of the constitutent materais. Therefore, a new methodology is presented that utilizes realistic assumptions.
