Application of Nano-Indentation, Nano-Scratch and Single Fibre Tests in Investigation of Interphases in Composite Materials

Hodzic, Alma; Kalyanasundaram, Shankar; Kim, J K; Lowe, Adrian; Stachurski, Zbigniew


Three novel experimental techniques were employed in this work in order to investigate the influence of the interphase region in polymer-glass composites on the bulk material properties: (i) the microdroplet test is a single fibre test designed to characterize the fibre-matrix bond (interface region) and to determine the interfacial shear stress in composite material; (ii) the nano-indentation test, a novel nano-hardness technique with ability to produce an indent as low as a few nanometres was...[Show more]
