A unit cell has been defined as the repeating element of the actual composites containing short fibres. By adopting a new analytical approach, equations have been derived to predict the properties of such units which may have any possible fibre-matrix interface properties. The work starts with the study of the mechanism of matrix-fibre load transfer under different interface conditions and continues with the effects of fibre dimensions and other properties of the constituents on the elastic modulus of the system. The conditions leading to fibre-matrix bond breakage, and deficiences due to fibre slippage, have been studied theoretically, and the results of numerical computations for different hypothetical systems are presented. Results of experimental works performed on different systems are in reasonable agreement with the theory. The main topics of this work have been suggested in previous works, but, except for mechanism of matrix-fibre load transfer when a perfect bond between the phases exists, no general theoretical work has been done. iii
