    Abstract

    The increasing use of Kevlar 49/epoxy composites in critical structural applications has led to a concern for their ability to maintain structural integrity over long periods. In order to predict their durability with confidence, we must understand their microscopic deformation and failure modes as well as the roles played by the fiber, epoxy matrix, and fiber-matrix interface in composite performance.
