Description

Porosity, introduced in composites during fabrication, takes the form of dispersed or discrete elongated voids, usually at the fiber-matrix interface. During subsequent loading, these voids act as nuclei of further damage growth resulting in strength degradation. Hence, it is important to determine the void content after fabrication.
