This paper introduces a simple fiber/tape composite that is easy to prepare and structurally more uniform. This novel composite provides a good alternative standard composite sample for experimental study of various phenomena and issues in fiber reinforced composite behaviors. Experimental results in the present work demonstrate how the fiber fragmentation, fiber-reinforcing effect and the gauge length effect can be successfully evaluated by using this novel composite specimen.
