    Abstract

    The effect of plasma polymerization on the interface adhesion between carbon fibres and an epoxy matrix was investigated. This was done by loading with pure bending moments in nominal mode I planar glassy carbon/ epoxy specimens. The glassy carbon was used to simulate the carbon fibres. The experiments demonstrated that significant increase in adhesion strength can be achieved although at the present ffiere is considerable scatter in the resuits. A method was developed to experimentally derive the interface cohesive law by means of fracture energy, peak stress and critical interface crack opening.
