An analysis of microdroplet test: effects of specimen geometry, matrix type, fibre treatment and water ageing
The microdroplet test has been used to characterize the interfacial bond in fibrous composite materials. The specimen consists of a length of fibre with a drop of resin cured on it and pulled out while the drop is being supported by a platinum disc with a hole. A properly tested specimen fails at the droplet's tip-fibre interface, revealing the ultimate interracial shear strength. The microdroplet test is carried out under optimal testing conditions, established from our previous work, in order...[Show more]
