Analysis of critical strains and loads in layered composites

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The present work is devoted to investigation of the compressive fracture for piecewise homogeneous materials with specific kinds of delaminations (defects with connected edges). The critical buckling strains and loads at which ply instability in laminated composites occurs under uniaxial and biaxial compression were evaluated. Different types of layers (linear elastic, elastic-plastic, hyper-elastic incompressible) were investigated.
