Abstract: Using the technique of photoelasticity, we have studied in detail the magnitude of the residual microstress at the matrix interface between epoxy resin and rubber particles or glass beads. A spheric stress-optic equation applicable to these composites was derived. The photoelastic figures induced by the interfacial residual microstresses and the factors affecting the intensity of light are discussed. The experimental results show that the residual microstresses at the matrix interface are independent of the p…
