Kulkarni, SM and Kishore, * (2002) Compressive strength of epoxy with bimodal filling of flyash. In: Journal of Reinforced Plastics and Composites, 21 (9). 857-865 .Full text not available from this repository.
Compressive strength of epoxy with "free-inforcement" flyash without any prior separation is studied. It is observed that the increase in filler volume fraction beyond 10% brings about a reduction in the compressive strength. Increasing adhesion factor, determined relative to unfilled matrix, implied an alleviation in the interfacial adhesion due to dewetting, especially at the surfaces of larger particles and at higher filler concentrations. Such deductions were verified by examining the surface features of compression tested samples in Scanning Electron Microscope.
