The Microdroplet Test: Experimental and Finite Element Analysis of the Dependence of Failure Mode on Droplet Shape
The microdroplet technique is usually designed as a fibre embedded in a drop of resin and subsequently pulled out while the drop is being supported by two knife edges, resulting in either debonding of the droplets from the fibres, or breakage of the fibres before debonding can occur. In this study, the microdroplet technique was performed using a platinum ring with a 40 μm hole instead of the usual two knife edges, giving an axisymmetric geometry, load and stress distribution.
