Military vehicles are often subjected to dynamic loads from mines. To protect these vehicles, steel plating underneath the vehicle is applied. However, these steel plates can be quite heavy, resulting in a slower vehicle. Composite laminates, however, are much lighter and also prove to be capable of protecting these vehicles from mines.<br/...

Methods based on fracture mechanics have been widely used in fatigue delamination growth (FDG) characterization of composite laminates. These methods are based on the similitude hypothesis. It is therefore important to have appropriate parameters to well represent the similitude, which is useful for fatigue delamination test standard...

Fatigue delamination growth (FDG) is an important failure in composite structures during their long-term operations. Hygrothermal aging can have significant effects on interlaminar resistance. It is therefore really necessary to explore FDG behavior in composite laminates with hygrothermal aging. Dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (DMTA),...

Temperature can significantly affect fatigue delamination growth (FDG) behavior in composites, while fiber bridging has been frequently reported during FDG. The focus of this study was therefore on investigating temperature effects on FDG behavior with fiber bridging. Mode I fatigue delamination experiments were conducted on a thermoset...

Numerical methods for delamination analysis, such as the cohesive zone method, require fracture energy as an essential input. Existing formulations rely on a phenomenological relationship that links fracture energy to the mode of fracture based on linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM). However, doubts exist about the applicability of LEFM....

Strain energy release rate calculations for various cases of delaminations emanating from matrix cracks are developed and used to predict the onset of delaminations and their growth size as a function of applied tension and shear loads in composite laminates. The method determines the matrix crack spacing, the delamination onset load, the...

The main objective of this paper is to present a delamination benchmark test concept for composite materials that develop non-self-similar delamination in characterization specimens. The non-self-similar delamination is induced by rotating the loading blocks. The simplicity of the test allows for analyzing the loading mode history by...

Fibre-reinforced polymer composite laminates are used extensively nowadays in various applications due to their superior mechanical properties. However, a great weakness of composite laminates is their susceptibility to out-of-plane concentrated loading (which can be broadly divided into quasi-static indentation and impact) owing to their weak...

An analytical model for the onset and growth of delaminations induced by matrix cracks under static loading is proposed. The model introduces four distinct configurations of delaminations originating from crack tips, which are applicable to cross-ply and general symmetrical laminates subjected to tension or tension + shear.<br/><br/>The...

More and more wind turbines are erecting in the landscape, stemming from the need for sustainable energy. However, less attention is paid to the secondary effects of these wind turbines, more specifically, the wind turbine blades. Wind turbine blades are made of composite material, a material that provides many advantageous properties for the...

In composite structures, delamination damage is typically the most common failure mechanism. Accurately characterizing the delamination behaviour of composite laminates is therefore crucial for predicting the fatigue safe-life of such structures. To this end, double-cantilever beam (DCB) composite specimens are used to measure the interlaminar...

Strain Hardening Cementitious Composite (SHCC) is an innovative type of fibre-reinforced cement-based composite that has superior tensile properties. Because of this, it holds the potential to enhance the shear capacity of reinforced concrete (RC) beams, if applied properly.<br/><br/>Experimental research was thus carried out with the purpose of...

Fibre reinforced polymer composites have found increasing use in aircraft structures. This means that fleet managers need damage assessment tools for such materials, in order to decide on appropriate sustainment strategies. Developing such tools is hindered by the difficulty of generalising from lab tests to predict the behaviour of full-scale...

Delamination growth is a key damage mode threatening the structural integrity of fibre reinforced polymer composite structures. To guide design and damage management of composite structures, research efforts have been made to understand delamination behaviours and establish standardized evaluation methods based mainly on one-dimensional...

Impacts on carbon fiber reinforced composites (CFRP) can produce a complex internal damage comprising multiple delaminations, which is hard to detect from visual inspection. This situation is known as barely visible impact damage (BVID). Considering that every airplane faces several impacts during its operational life, and that the majority of...

The complex failure mechanisms involved in failure of interfaces requires the use of an accurate description of the cohesive law. In recent years, there have been many developments to determine the full shape of the cohesive law. However, most of the existing cohesive zone models assume a simplified shape, such as bilinear, trapezoidal or...

This study provides an investigation on mode I fatigue delamination growth (FDG) with fibre bridging at different R-ratios and temperatures in carbon-fibre reinforced polymer composites. FDG experiments were first conducted at different temperatures of R-ratios 0.1 and 0.5 via unidirectional double cantilever beam (DCB) specimens. A fatigue...

Damages to aircraft fuselages by ice impactors are categorized as barely visible impact damage (BVID). As the application of composite laminates in manufacturing aircraft fuselage is increasing rapidly, studying hail impact on composite laminates seems crucial.

In previous literature, a plateau phase in fatigue growth of impact delamination projected area in CFRP was found. Explaining this plateau phase still represents a knowledge gap. In the present work, echo-pulse and through thickness transmission ultrasonic scan inspections were combined with acoustic emission monitoring to explain this...

Quasi-static or cyclic loading of an artificial starter crack in unidirectionally fibre-reinforced composite test coupons yields fracture mechanics data—the toughness or strain-energy release rate (labelled G)—for characterising delamination initiation and propagation. Thus far, the reproducibility of these tests is typically between 10 and...
