Abstract

In this paper, tensile tests are carried out on seven kinds of glass particle reinforced nylon 66 composites in which a particle volume fraction is varied in 0%, 10%, 20% and 30%, and glass particles treated or untreated with silan-coupling are used. The stress-strain response of the composites depends on both the particle volume fraction and the treatment of interface between the particles and matrix. Young's modulus and Poisson's ratio are characterized by only the particle volume fraction, while tensile strength is described as a function of the particle volume fraction and interface treatment. With increasing particle volume fraction, the tensile strength increases first and then becomes constant in the interface-treated composites, and d
