Abstract

A study of the interfacial fracture toughness and fracture mechanisms for a glass-fiber/polyamide 6,6 fiber-metal laminate (FML) was conducted. This was achieved using a single-cantilever beam (SCB) specimen which also introduces mode I dominated mixed-mode (I/II) failure. The results show that cohesive failure through the ionomer resin can increase fracture toughness.
