Composite Materials, Volume 6: Interfaces in Polymer Matrix Composites covers the interface region as deduced from extensive practical studies of composite properties and from scientific studies of surfaces and surface modifiers. The book starts by providing a historical background on the studies and theories of the interface. The text then discusses the mechanics of load transfer at the interface; the surface chemistry of moisture-induced composite failure; and radioisotope studies of coupling agents at the interface. The use of silane coupling agents in particulate mineral filled composites; the mechanism of adhesion through silane coupling agents; as well as the high-modulus fibers and the fiber-resin interface in resin composites are also considered. Materials scientists, materials engineers, and design engineers will find the book invaluable.
