Fracture mechanics of delamination : initiation and growth by Albert S. D Wang( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the results from an experimental and analytical study on the fracture mechanics of delamination. Experiments have been conducted using the AS-3501-06 graphite-epoxy laminates in order to observe delamination growth of various geometrical and loading conditions. Static and fatigue crack growth under both tension and compressive loads are studied. The experiments helped to identify and isolate the most important loading, geometry and material parameters which influence the delamination processes. Predictive models are then developed to model these processes, based on the linear elastic fracture mechanics concept of energy release rate. The models are executed by a finite element routine which simulates the crack growth process. Extension of the energy method to the growth process under constant amplitude fatigue loads leads to the concept of constant damage states. This concept is readily applied in a cumulative damage model for fatigue under spectrum loading. (Author)
A Three Dimensional Finite Element Analysis of Delamination Growth in Composite Laminates. I. The Energy Methods and Case-Study Problems( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report presents in detail the application of an energy method to describe a class of delamination growth problems found in polymer-based composite laminates. The energy method is derived from the general concept of the classification fracture mechanics. When used judiciously and with proper interpretation of the physical factors pertinent to the crack growth process at the lamina(ply) level, the method provides an analytical simulation for the delamination process in laminates subjected to monotonic loading and/or cyclic loading, both in tension and in compression. Case studies involving one-dimensional growth (e.g. uniform free edge delamination) and two-dimensional delamination growth (contour delamination) have been performed along with laboratory tests using laminates made of AS-3501-06 graphite-epoxy system. Excellent correlation between experimental and predicted results has been achieved. (Author)
