Abstract: A new reduction scheme of fragmentation data for the derivation of interfacial mechanical properties in polymer composites is proposed. The scheme is based on a theoretical model that accounts for elastic load transfer and friction at the interface, as well as for the statistical nature of fibre strength. Interface mechanical behaviour is characterized by two independent parameters, namely the interface bond strength and interface frictional resistance. Derived values of the two interface properties are computed, such that they yield the best possible agreement between experimental and theoretical results for the evolution of fibre fragment aspect ratio and debonding ratio as a function of applied strain. Results are reported for carbon fibres embedded in an epoxy matrix, with different revels of fibre surface treatment.
