Nowadays more and more large composites are used to replace the traditional metallic structural materials in the industries. However, for manufacturing the thick thermoset composites, the size not only influences the mechanical properties in the completed products, but also the core temperature overshoot generated during the curing reaction....

In design with composite materials, the capability of tailoring the properties of the structure with respect to the specific load requirements in each direction, allowed by their anisotropic nature, is coupled with the development of interlaminar stresses transferred through the thickness. Specifically, at the free edge of the laminate, due to...

Smart actuators, made of smart materials, are becoming more attractive in many applications because smart materials are not subjected to wear and does not require lubrication during services. Piezoelectric materials are a group of the many attractive smart materials that are being investigated for many applications today. Piezoelectric materials...

A model was developed for delamination growth in bonded repair patches under constant amplitude fatigue loading. The model used the finite element method, employing the virtual crack closure technique, to determine the strain energy release rate (SERR) as a function of delamination length. Interaction effects between multiple delaminations, and...
