    Abstract

    The purpose of the present Ph.D. project is to investigate the load transfer mechanisms between the fibre and matrix and the stress/strain fields in and around single fibres in short fibre reinforced viscoelastic polymer matrix composites subjected to various loading histories. The materials considered are high modulus carbon fibres embedded in a polypropylene matrix. The polypropylene matrix displays nonlinear viscoelasticity and its constitutive behaviour is modelled using the Schapery model.
