Analysis of Stresses for Cross-Ply Laminates with Multiple Matrix Cracks under Bending

Abstract:

Article Preview

On the basis of the shear-lag theory, a layered shear-lag model was established to study the stress redistributions of cross-ply laminates with multiple transverse matrix cracks in the 90º ply under bending. The present results are in a good agreement with variational solutions and finite element results and show that approximate solutions of stress distributions for cross-ply laminates with transverse cracks under bending can be obtained by using a shear-lag method. The present paper therefore affords a new way or method for studying the stress redistributions and failure mechanism for cross-ply laminates with flaws under bending.
