Paper Title:
Dependence Between Aging Treatments and Residual Stresses on Composite Laminate
  Abstract

The objective of this paper is to study the influence of residual stresses due to fabrication conditions on the thermomechanical behavior of carbon/epoxy laminate structures (cross ply). These studied laminates have undergone various cycles of thermal aging. The addition of a post-cure cycle after the end of the initial cycle makes it possible to reduce the residual stresses level. The incremental hole-drilling method is used to measure the residual strain in the laminates. These measured strains and the numerical calibration coefficients obtained by the finite element method allow to calculating the residual stress distribution in composite depth. The obtained results show that heat treatments of composite structures do not lead to an important reduction the initial residual stress due the fabrication conditions.
