This paper demonstrates how the critical strain energy density in the delamination tip vicinity may be used to explain the physics of delamination growth under mixed mode I/II. A theory previously proposed to physically relate mode I and mode II delamination growth is further extended towards describing the onset of mixed mode I/II...

Finite-width-correction factors (FWCF) are required for GLARE to accurately predict fatigue crack growth using linear elastic fracture mechanics. As demonstrated in earlier work, these factors effectively correct for the change in specimen compliance, which in GLARE relates to intact fibre layers and the formation of delaminations between...

In order to understand the physics of the delamination onset in laminated composites, an experimental investigation of delamination growth is presented. The main objective of this paper is to demonstrate that delamination onset occurs at lower values than Gc defined by the ASTM standards, and that the strain energy release rate level at which...

With the introduction of fibre metal laminates (FMLs) as a (fatigue) damage tolerant material concept in aeronautics, an interesting field emerged where fatigue damage interaction plays a dominant role. The hybrid concept effectively demands evaluating fatigue damage growth based on fracture phenomena typical for both metals and fibre...

In this paper, by considering the absorbed energy in the fracture process zone and extension of the minimum strain energy density theory for orthotropic materials, a new mixed mode I/II failure criterion was proposed. The applicability of the new criterion, to predict the crack growth in both laminated composites and wood species, was...

In general, a finite width correction to stress intensity factor (SIF) is required in the fatigue crack growth. The finite width correction factor can be explained physically from the energy point of view. It is assumed that the finite width correction factor primarily constitutes an energy correction factor, i.e. it corrects the applied load...

The influence of fibre bridging on delamination failure in multidirectional composite laminates with different thickness scales is characterized, and the dependence of fibre bridging significance on laminate thickness as well as loading regime is investigated in this paper. Both quasi-static and fatigue resistance curves (R-curve) are...

A novel framework to fuse structural health monitoring (SHM) data from different in-situ monitoring techniques is proposed aiming to develop a hyper-feature towards more effective prognostics. A state-of-the-art Non-Homogenous Hidden Semi Markov Model (NHHSMM) is utilized to model the damage accumulation of composite structures, subjected to...

The introduction, originally in 2009, by the FAA of a ‘slow growth’ approach to the certification of polymer-matrix fibre composites has focused attention on the experimental data and the analytical tools needed to assess the growth of delaminations under cyclic-fatigue loads. Of direct relevance is the fact that fatigue tests on aircraft...

This paper provides an investigation on thickness effects on fibre-bridged fatigue delamination growth (FDG) in composite laminates. A modified Paris relation was employed to interpret experimental fatigue data. The results clearly demonstrated that both thickness and fibre bridging had negligible effects on FDG behaviors. Both energy...

Plastic energy dissipation is inevitable during fatigue crack growth. There have been previous attempts reported in literature to correlate the plastic dissipated energy (dW/dN) to fatigue crack growth rate (da/dN). However, at a given dW/dN, the da/dN changes with the ratio of minimum and maximum loads, known as the stress ratio. This paper...

This paper discusses the appropriateness of crack length as a reference dimension for fatigue damage. Current discussion on short crack versus long crack data is still divided between various approaches to model small crack growth. A proper physical explanation of the probable cause of the apparent differences between short crack and long...

In an attempt to understand quasi-static delamination growth under mixed mode loading conditions from a physics-based perspective, this work first evaluated cracking in isotropic materials. The critical Strain Energy Density (SED) approach is adopted, because physically the onset of crack growth is expected to occur when the energy available...

Current methods for prediction of fatigue crack growth are based on empirical correlations which do not take the crack growth behaviour within a single cycle into account. To improve these prediction methods, more understanding of the physical mechanisms of crack growth is required. In this research the acoustic emission technique was used to...

Fatigue delamination in multidirectional composite laminates was experimentally investigated in present study. Both the Paris relation and a modified Paris relation (with a new similitude parameter) were employed to interpret fatigue delamination with significant fibre bridging. The results clearly demonstrated that fatigue delamination was...

The effect of temperature on fatigue crack growth in epoxy adhesive bonds was investigated for a range of temperatures from -55 to 80[U+202F]°C. The fatigue crack growth behaviour was characterised using both strain energy release rate (SERR) and by measurements of energy dissipation. It was found that for a given maximum SERR, or a given...

To further optimize aeronautical structures, an increased level of material hybridization is required. Optimization efforts aim to identify optimal design solutions that satisfy prescribed requirements. However, this demands reversal of currently available knowledge on hybrid structural technologies, which are often formulated as theories...
