  5. 5. Damage evolution in laminates with manufacturing defects

    Author : Yongxin Huang; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Polymera konstruktionsmaterial; Polymeric Composite Materials;

    Abstract : In this thesis, experimental investigations and theoretical studies on the stochastic matrix cracking evolution under static loading in composite laminates with manufacturing defects are presented. The presented work demonstrates a methodology that accounts for the statistically distributed defects in damage mechanics models for the assessment of the integrity of composites and for the structural design of composites.
