Abstract

The interface region has a great deal of importance in determining the ultimate properties of a given composite. There are two main reasons for this importance of the interface region:

  1. (i)

    the interface occupies a very large area per unit volume in composites (see Sec. 5.1 below), and

  2. (ii)

    in general, the matrix and reinforcement form a system that is not in thermodynamic equilibrium. This can lead to a series of interaction at the interface.
