    Abstract

    There has been a rapid growth in the development and application of fibre-reinforced thermoplastic polymer composites in recent years. Parallel to this growth has been the increasing recognition of the need to better understand and measure the micro-mechanical parameters which control the structure-property relationships in such composites. The properties of thermoplastic composites result from a combination of the fibre and matrix properties and the ability to transfer stresses across the fibre-matrix interphase. Optimization of the stress transfer capability of the fibre-matrix interphase region is critical to achieving the required performance level in thermoplastic matrix composites.
