|Summary||Fiber reinforced plastics are essentially heterogeneous materials where plastic matrix is reinforced by fibers. Therefore, it is important to know the properties of fiber/matrix interaction in addition to the properties of fiber and matrix themselves. To measure the fiber/ matrix adhesive strength, various kinds of tests such as fiber pull-out, fragmentation, microbond, etc. have so far been tried. But the correlation of the strength among these test methods is not necessarily clear although the argument of Ref. has a point. In the present study, we tried microbond tests with various test conditions to get reliable interfacial shearing strength.
