Interlaminar fracture analysis of laminated composites


This direction is connected with the numerical modelling and experimental investigations of delamination process in laminated composites under mixed mode loading conditions. Different laminates (carbon/epoxy, glass/epoxy with different fibre surface treatments) have been studied. The fracture criterion to evaluate the interlaminar fracture under mixed mode loading conditions has been developed.
