Micromechanical Model of Interface between Fibre and Matrix of Metal Matrix Composite Reinforced with Continuous Fibre
A micromechanical model is employed to investigate the influence of the interface between the fibre and the matrix of a metal matrix composite with long fibre, which is elaborated through finite element method. Also, transverse properties of composite are studied in the present work. The interface, between the fibre and the matrix, is studied employing cohesive elements. These elements employ a cohesive zone model, which follows a bilinear law.
