Title

Interfacial Characterization of Composites by Dynamic Mechanical Analysis

Abstract

The interfacial characteristics of carbon fiber/epoxy matrix composites have been characterized experimentally for three different kinds of carbon fibers namely sized and surface treated, sized but not surface treated, and unsized but surface treated. Dynamic mechanical tests were conducted to measure, (i) the loss modulus and tan δ as a function of frequency and temperature and, (ii) tan δ (energy dissipation) values (at T g) of the different fiber/matrix systems. Also, short beam shear tests were performed to determine the apparent interlaminar shear strength of the composites.
