The strength of the tailored polymer/inclusion interface in polymer composites evaluated in situ by acoustic emission

Summary

A correlation between interface strength and data of acoustic emission measurements in particle filled polymer composites was found. The method allows the evaluation of the interface strength in situ in polymer composite specimens at uniaxial loading. The measurements have shown that the tailored interface with the monomolecular tethered polymer layers of various grafting density change the mechanism of microdefect formation.
