Classic fracture analysis of unfilled plastics has welldefined
and well-documented methods for determining what
happened to broken parts. However, introducing long-fibers
into the picture obscures many of the usual clues, and while
there are excellent materials available on fracture analysis
in general, information appears scarce regarding these
materials. Microscopy is a powerful tool in this area when
combined with careful observation and deductive reasoning.
This paper discusses helpful clues that the microscope has
yielded in our laboratory for fracture analysis of long-fiber
reinforced thermoplastic parts
