Previous works have established the response and failure behaviour of hybrid (CFRP-GFRP) laminates when subjected to a wide range of destabilising loads. However, to date no works have focused on plates with cut-outs under shear loading and quantified the influence of selective laminate shapes and hybridisation on their post-buckling response...

A novel and efficient numerical formulation for the modelling of multiple delaminations growth in laminated composite materials subjected to quasi-static loading is presented. The proposed formulation alleviates the high computational cost associated with models featuring cohesive elements by using a novel Adaptive Refinement Scheme and an...

Forming process with pre-stacked and uncured thermoset fibre metal laminate offers improved deformability compared to full-cured laminate especially for the production of complex structural components. This work investigated the friction behaviour at the metal-prepreg interface of glass fibre reinforced aluminium laminate through an inter-ply...

Damage characterization of laminated composites has been thoroughly studied the last decades where researchers developed several damage models, and in combination with experimental evidence, contributed to better understanding of the structural behavior of these structures. Experimental techniques played an essential role on this progress and...

Although being a popular approach for the modeling of laminated composites, mesoscale constitutive models often struggle to represent material response for arbitrary load cases. A better alternative in terms of accuracy is to use the FE<sup>2</sup> technique to upscale microscopic material behavior without loss of generality, but the...

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...

The use of the Classical Laminate Theory (CLT) is limited to laminates where all the fibres in a ply are oriented in the plane of the laminate. In some applications, it is possible that the plies will start at the bottom of a laminate and end at the top of the laminate. This means an inclination is added to the plies, which creates an extra...

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...

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...

Despite the key advantages of Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composites, they are susceptible to Barely Visible Impact Damage (BVID) under transverse loadings. This study investigates BVID in two quasi-isotropic carbon/epoxy laminates under quasi-static indentation and Low-Velocity Impact (LVI) loadings using Acoustic Emission (AE). First,...

This study focuses on the clustering of the indentation-induced interlaminar and intralaminar damages in carbon/epoxy laminated composites using Acoustic Emission (AE) technique. Two quasi-isotropic specimens with layups of [60/0/-60]4S (is named dispersed specimen) and [604/04/-604]S (is named blocked specimen) were fabricated and subjected to...

This report, which from now and onwards will be called the main body of the thesis, covers the core of the<br/>problem that has to be solved. Generally, the aim of this thesis is to investigate a laminated composite’s<br/>structural response, made of FRP, when its material properties are assumed stochastic instead of<br/>deterministic.

The paper deals with the multi-objective optimization problems of laminated composite beam structures. The objective function is to minimize the weight of the whole laminated composite beam and maximize the natural frequency. In particular, the simultaneous use of all the design variables such as fiber volume fractions, thickness and fiber...

In the present work, the influence of strain on phase formation at the Al/Ni interface was investigated during cold roll bonding and annealing. A sandwich sample composed of an Al-Ni-Al stack was cold rolled with reductions in the range of 50% to 90%, followed by annealing at 450 °C for 60 min. The crystallography of the annealed sandwich...

Advancements in automated fibre-placement (AFP) technology make it possible to take laminate tailoring further than just stacking sequence optimisation; they enable the designer to vary the fibre orientation angle spatially within each ply. Spatial variation of fibre orientation angles results in a variable stiffness (VS) laminate. The work...
