Abstract

An analytical model based on a consistent shear-lag theory was developed to predict the interfacial shear stress in single fibre pull-out tests. The calculations show that the stress is highly dependent on the specimen thickness and the method of testing. Data for the debond stress and the interfacial shear stress were measured for single SiC fibres embedded in a magnesium aluminium silicate (cordierite) matrix. The effect of fibre embedded length, processing schedule, and matrix toughening were investigated. For a fixed sample support configuration during testing, good agreement was obtained between the model predictions and experimental data.
