Suggestion of the Delamination Aspect Ratio in GLARE
The applicability of GLARE is restricted due to the frequent delamination of different materials at interlaminar. The previous researches showed that the major parameter to control the delamination of GLARE was a crack (a). On the other hand, it was also shown that a delamination width (b) could strongly effect on the delamination behavior. Therefore, the aim of this research is to define the delamination behavior using the above correlation. In conclusions, it was shown that the delamination aspect ratio (b/a) was slowly decreased and the delamination area rate (ADR) was increased as the normalized crack size (a/W) was increased. The effect of the delamination shape was strong at the beginning of the cyclic loading but it was gradually diminished.
