2008 (English)In: Advances in Heterogeneous Material Mechanics: Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Heterogeneous Material Mechanics, ICHMM 2008 / [ed] Jinghong Fan, Lancaster, Pa: DEStech Publications, Inc. , 2008, 1284-1287 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Progressive cracking of a transverse layer in a cross-ply composite laminate subjected to tensile loading is considered. Using the results of a probabilistic cracking model, approximate relations for crack density as a function of stress are derived for initiation-controlled cracking. It is shown that the crack density evolution in the transverse ply can be represented by a mastercurve in suitably normalized coordinates. The mastercurve approach is applied to progressive cracking in glass/epoxy laminates.
