The dimensions of the specimens were 4 x 10 x 120 mm (specimen A) and 4 x 10 x 50 mm (specimen B). The span betw een the lowe r loadi ng poin ts was 10 mm less than the specimen length. Account for the following experimental observations: (a) Specimen A failed by tensile fracture from a line midway between the lower loading points at a force of 1164 N. (b) S p e c i m e n B f a i l e d b y s h e a r a t t h e m i d p l a n e a t a f o r c e o f 2 6 7 N. 2 QUESTIONS : 1. All interfaces between the matrix and the reinforcement are stable and will never change during service even at high temperatures. and will never change during service even at high temperatures....
