Paper Title:
Experimental and Numerical Study on Six- Point Bending Test of a Composite Stiffened Panel
  Abstract

A six-point bending test was presented to simulate skin/stiffener debonding under anti-symmetrical loading conditions. A novel rig was design via which the anti-symmetrical bending deformations can be forced on to the specimens. Experimental study on six-point bending test of composite stiffened panels of T700/QY8911 was done by using this rig. The tests are numerically analyzed using the finite element code ABAQUS, modeling the entire stiffened panel by shell elements, and investigating the progressive delamination by means of the cohesive zone model. The results of numerical analyses are compared to the experimental ones in terms of load-displacement curves and debonding positions between skin and stringer. The experimental and numerical resulits show that the anti-symmetrical bending deformation is the main factor which results in the asymmetrical propagation of the debonding between the skin and the stiffener. The failure mechanisms of the test are similar to the ones which induces skin/stiffener debonding during post-buckling in the anti-symmetrical buckling mode.
