Abstract: The aircraft industry strives for significantly reduced development and operating costs. Reduction of structural weight at safe design is...
Abstract: Experimental static and fatigue tension-tension tests were carried out on 5HS/RTM6 composite intact coupons and coupons incorporating...
Abstract: Structures manufactured in fibre-metal laminates (e.g. Glare) have been designed considering ideal mechanical properties determined by the...
Abstract: Composite damage modelling with cohesive elements has initially been limited to the analysis of interface damage or delamination. However,...
Abstract: A boundary element method (BEM) for the analysis of the semipermeable crack is developed using the numerical Green’s function approach. The...
Abstract: This work aims at introducing the concept of the numerical Green’s function (NGF) idea for elastostatic fracture mechanics using the...
Abstract: This paper presents the development of a new boundary element formulation for analysis of fracture problems in creeping materials. For the...
