Abstract

Abstract The tensile behaviour of short-fibre reinforced polymers depends on many factors. The extent to which the radius of the fibres and their aspect ratio must be regarded as separate geometric parameters is studied in this work. Young's modulus is completely described by the aspect ratio, but both the absolute value of the failure strength and the impact strength are influenced by the detrimental effect of higher stress concentrations at thick fibres compared to thin ones.
