Nevertheless, they are still oriented almost parallel to the fiber axis. >y11 Q Q , Radial Onion skin Random Quasi-onion Figure 6. Microstructures of pitch-bused carbon fibers. In his study, Endo (ref. 15) compared several grades of commercial pitch-based fibers, Thornel PlOO and P120 (Amoco Performance Products, Incorporated) and Carbonic HM50, HM60, and HM80 (Kashima Oil Company), with the Torayca PAN-based fibers.

Brittle Failure Mechanism Because flaws limit the tensile strength, considerable effort has been made to minimize contamination in both PAN-based and pitch-based carbon fibers (refs. 11 and 12). Yet even when flaw-inducing particles are minimized, structural flaws within carbon fibers still limit the tensile strength. Johnson (ref. 13) recently presented an excellent explanation of these structural limitations of carbon fibers and of the interaction between microstructure and the flaw sensitivity of these fibers, based on the mechanism for tensile failure proposed by Reynolds and Sharp (see ref.
