Evaluation of Interlaminar Damage and Crack Propagation through Digital Image Correlation Method

Abstract:

Article Preview

Interface damage characterization and interlaminar failure of sandwich specimens with two initial interlaminar defects (inserts) is done by using the digital image correlation method. Mode I tests reveal interesting particularities on damage localization and unstable crack propagation. After analyzing the experimentally obtained results, we propose as a failure parameter the local strain at the crack tip or, alternatively, the crack tip opening displacement which quantifies the non-linear phenomena.
