Abstract

In situ observation by synchrotron X-ray topography was carried out of the notched and unnotched SCS-6 fiber-reinforced aluminum alloys during tensile tests. Fiber breaks occurring at different loading levels were successfully detected. Effects of debond length and plastic deformation after one fiber break on the stress transfer mechanism were then analyzed by three-dimensional finite element models. Implications of these experimental and numerical results were suggested.
