The results of in-plane shear tests performed on 5-hardness satin woven carbon/PPS thermoplastic prepregs are described. The experimental analyses are based on bias-extension tests performed in an environmental chamber. The results are given for different temperatures on both side of the melting point. This range of temperature is those of the part during a thermoforming process. In another hand it is shown that second-gradient energy terms allow for an effective prediction of the onset of internal shear boundary layers which are transition zones between two different shear deformation modes. The existence of these boundary layers cannot be described by a simple first-gradient model.
