Abstract

The effect of fibre alignment, fibre volume fraction and other fibre-associated parameters on the structure and fracture behaviour of injection-moulded nylon 66 composites reinforced with short or long glass fibres is investigated by electron and optical microscopy and differential scanning calorimetry. Composites reinforced with the long fibres are shown to have better stiffness and toughness compared to those reinforced with the short fibres.
