Paper Abstract

A digital speckle micro-metrology system, which is a combination of a long-focus microscope and a digital image-measuring device, is developed for studying the micro-mechanics behavior of the interphase in thermoplastic composites. In this paper, the micro- metrology system is employed to obtain the displacement field in each step, strain field in the area across the interphase and to investigate the effect of temperature on the interphase micro- mechanics behaviors of thermoplastic composites. The experimental results show that a significant mismatch of properties across the investigate the effect of temperature on the interphase micro- mechanics behaviors of thermoplastic composites. The experimental results show that a significant mismatch of properties across the interphase are compensated under practical service conditions of 100 degrees C.
