Abstract: Fractography has been used in the post-failure analysis of single edge notched specimens of injection molded blends of polycarbonate (PC) and acrylonitrilebutadiene-styrene terpolymer (ABS). The mode of ductile tensile fracture of single edge notched specimens depended on composition. Plane stress shear tearing was observed in the composition range PC/ABS 90, ' 10 to 70/30 by weight where PC was the continuous phase. Intermediate compositions, PC/ABS 60/40 to 40/60, had a co-continuous or almost co-continuous…
