Abstract

A new method of evaluation of fibre-matrix adhesion in short fibre composites is proposed. The method is based on a comparison of experimental and model probability distribution functions of fibre pull-out length. The real pull-out lengths are measured on scanning electron micrographs of composite fracture surfaces. Two models for prediction of pull-out lengths are based on a known fibre length distribution in injection—moulded composites.

Keywords : fibre pull-out length, fibre-matrix adhesion, probability distribution function, short fibre composite
