Transmitted light microscopy of a fibre reinforced metal

A method is presented for studying fibre damage in continuous fibre reinforced composites. It is based on contrasting the transmission of light through intact translucent fibres with the light through fractured or dead-ended fibres. The method is applied in order to detect processing-induced fibre fractures in aluminium reinforced with continuous alumina fibres.
