Article Preview

Base on the finite element method, the effect of interface damage on macroscopic constitutive behavior of composite materials subjected to uniaxial tension was studied. A bilinear cohesive law, which relates the traction and displacement jumps, was adopted to model the debonding of particle/matrix interface. Stress-strain curves for a material with different interface properties, particle size and volume fraction were discussed in detail. The results show that the damage due to debonding of particle/matrix interfaces can significantly affect the macroscopic response of composite materials, and that the interaction of particles is innegligible in multi-particle structure.
