Abstract / Description of output

The mechanical strength of a structural composite is strongly affected by the strength and toughness of the interface achieved between the continuous matrix phase, or resin, and the reinforcing phase, normally consisting of multiple arrays of carbon or glass fibers. Interfacial shear strength (IFSS) is the accepted parameter for quantifying the strength of the matrix-fiber interface. However, the value of IFSS is not directly accessible by measurement and must be approximated indirectly from other data
