The Probabilistic Compliance Methodology for Damage Tolerance Design of Thicker Composite Structure
In this paper, the probabilistic compliance methodology for damage tolerance design of thicker composite structures were investigated, and the research results show that for the composite laminates withstanding impact energy below 90J, if it cannot produce barely visible impact damage (BVID), then using the probabilistic methodology can meet certification requirements of damage tolerance.
