An analytical approach on the evaluation of interphase Poisson’s ratio for fibrous composites, consisting of polymeric matrix and unidirectional continuous fibers, is performed. The simulation of the microstructure of the composite was carried out by means of a modified form of Hashin-Rosen cylinder assemblage model. Next, by the use of this three-phase model the authors impose some limitations to the polynomial variation laws which are commonly adopted to approximate the thermomechanical properties of the interphase layer of this type of polymeric composites and then propose an nth-degree polynomial function to approximate the Poisson’s ratio of this layer.
