Article Preview

This article presents a first approach of hygrothermal microcracking in stitched crossply laminates. The presentation includes the definition of the material mesostructure and the selection of a characterization method adapted to the specificity of the study. The hygrothermal loading selected is discussed and the evolution of the crack density in stitched crossply composites during the loading is presented and commented.
