Abstract or Summary
  • The load transfer between wood particles and the matrix was analyzed by observation of the strain patterns in thin films of high density polyethylene (HDPE) with embedded wood particles subjected to tensile loading. Optical measurement techniques based on the digital image correlation (DIC) principle were employed for quantitative measurement of strain distributions on the surfaces of the specimens. Interpretation of these measurements in terms of load transfer between the particle and the matrix below the surface proved challenging and required a structured approach. In this paper, quantitative descriptors were selected as synthesized metrics to support the quantitative interpretation of the measured strains. X-ray computed tomography (XCT) scans were used to assess the effect of the position of the particles in the film specimens on the strains patterns observed on the surface.
