Interfacial stress concentrations in rubber-filled epoxy resin and glass bead-filled epoxy resin systems were studied by a photoelastic method. We found that the stress concentration is independent of the applied stress and the particle size, but decreases with increasing chemical bonding at the interface between rubber and matrix. For the rubber-filled system, stress concentration is present at the equator of particles, while for either the untreated or treated glass bead-filled system, it is on the two pole…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific 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 researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
