Fiber/Matrix Interface in Composite Materials

Mark DeMeuse – Jul 26, 2010

Glass fiber compositeInterfaces are among the most important yet least understood components of a composite material. In particular, there is a lack of understanding of processes occurring at the atomic level of interfaces, and how those processes influence the global material behavior. There is a close relationship between the processes that occur on the atomic, microscopic, and macroscopic levels. In fact, knowledge of the sequences of events occurring on these different levels is extremely important in understanding the nature of interfacial phenomena. Characterization of the mechanical properties of interfacial zones is necessary for understanding mechanical behavior.

Read on and take a look at the features of the interface in composite materials as well as characterization methods which are commonly used to characterize the interface. Also, explore the recent advances in several areas for future development.
