For a fiber-reinforced composite, the efficiency of reinforcement η is dependent on fiber length L according to:

η = (L – 2x)/L

where x represents the length of the fiber at each end that does not contribute to the load transfer.

a) Using MATLAB, plot η versus L (up to L = 40 mm) assuming that x = 0.75 mm.

b) What length is required for a 0.80 efficiency of reinforcement?
