In this work, effects of matrix and interface modification on the mechanical behavior of short carbon fiber-reinforced diglycidyl ether of bisphenol-A (DGEBA)-based epoxy composite were studied. For this purpose, fiber surfaces were treated by a silane coupling agent (SCA) and the epoxy matrix was modified with hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB).
