Progressive Damage Analyses of Composite Laminates Exhibiting Free Edge Effects Using a New Micro-Meso Approach
In this paper, the developed new micro-meso method by the authors is used for the edge-effects analyses of various angle-ply laminates such as [10/-10]2s and [30/-30]2s. It is shown that the obtained stress-strain behaviors of laminates are in well agreement with the available experimental results. The stress variations through the laminate thickness and near the free edges are also computed and compared with the available CDM results.
