If Fiber Reinforced Metal Laminates (FRMLs) were delaminated, the decrease of stiffness and fiber bridging effect would result in the sudden aggravation of fatigue characteristics. It was reported that the delamination of FRMLs resulted from the crack of Al alloy layers and that it depended on the crack growth. When FRMLs with circular holes was un-cracked but was delaminated, it was impossible to analyze them by conventional fracture parameters expressed as the function of cracks. Therefore, a new analytical model called Pseudo Crack Model (PCM) was suggested to compare the delaminations whether cracks were made or not. The relationship between the crack consumption rate (Ccrack) and the delamination consumption rate (Cdel) was discussed and it was also known that the effect of the Ccrack was larger than that of the Cdel.
