Analysis of Potential Energy Release Rate of Composite Laminate Based on Timoshenko Beam Theory
The Timoshenko beam theory is used to model each part of cracked beam and to calculate the potential energy release rate. Calculations are given for the double cantilever beam specimen, which is simulated as two separate beams connected elastically along the uncracked interface.
