An Experimental Study of Dropped Ply Region in Composite

Abstract:

Article Preview

A micro mechanical study of Carbon/Epoxy composites with internally dropped plies has been made using micro-moiré interferometry. The experimental results show that there is a stress concentration region before the dropped ply. Micro cracks were initiated and propagated in this region. Two failure mechanisms in the dropped ply region were observed.
