Multiscale modelling of composites starts from the in situ micromechanical testing of the composite constituents. In this application note, novel techniques for high strain rate testing of the matrix and fibre-matrix interface are presented, together with a novel technique for fibre-matrix interface fracture energy characterization.
This research was carried out by Dr Mario Rueda-Ruiz (IMDEA Materials Institute) and received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 722096, DYNACOMP project.
