Abstract:The behaviour of a propagating crack when an interface is present is a key feature in composite materials. This interaction usually predetermines final fracture behaviour of the material. In case of ceramic based composites (particle, fibre reinforced, laminates etc.) knowledge about properties of the interface and/or interlayer is usually unknown due to difficulties associated with their experimental determination. The aim of this work is to indicate a possible way for the determination of interface character… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
