Novak, J. and Pearce, C.J and Grassl, P. and Yang, Liu and Thomason, James (2009) Analysis of the microbond test using nonlinear fracture mechanics. In: 17th International Conference on Composite Materials, ICCM17, 2009-07-27 - 2009-07-31, Edinburgh, UK.
Microbond tests composed of single fibre and matrix droplet are often used to determine the properties of fibre reinforced composites. Interfacial shear strength is quantified by the maximum pull-out force assuming a uniform stress distribution along the fibre. Here, nonlinear finite element analyses are performed to investigate the validity of this assumption.
