Abstract

The role of fibre-matrix interface characteristics in defining the static tension and tension-tension fatigue properties and behaviour of 5-HS woven carbon fibre (CF) reinforced polyphenylene sulphide (PPS) is investigated and discussed with reference to two composite materials: as received fibre composites with poor fibre-matrix adhesion and treated fibre composites with good fibre-matrix adhesion. The results show that good fibre-matrix adhesion is important to exploit the strength and stiffness properties of carbon fibre and the toughness of the thermoplastic resin.
