A general parametric study using nonlinear finite element analysis for the microindentation test for composite interfacial shear strength measurement was performed. The effects of material parameters such as matrix and interphase properties and interphase thickness on the interfacial shear stress...
The cure process of thick parts of thermoset-based composites is considered for the case of quick increase of the ambient temperature. One-dimensional heat transfer equation with heat release due to cure and a total kinetic equation are used. The following cure process requirements are taken into...
