    A.P.S. Selvadurai1,2, H. Nikopour2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.85, No.3, pp. 279-298, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.085.279

    Abstract This paper examines the influence of a through crack on the overall flexural behaviour of a layered composite Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) plate that is fixed boundary along a circular boundary. Plates with different through crack configurations and subjected to uniform air pressure loading are examined both experimentally and computationally. In particular, the effect of crack length and its orientation on the overall pressure-deflection behaviour of the composite plate is investigated. The layered composite CFRP plate used in the experimental investigation consisted of 11 layers of a polyester matrix unidirectionally reinforced with carbon fibres. The bulk fibre volume fraction… More >
