A Progressive Damage Methodology for Residual Strength Predictions of Notched Composite Panels The translaminate fracture behavior of carbon/epoxy structural laminates with through-penetration notches was investigated to develop a residual strength prediction methodology for composite structures. An experimental characterization of several composite materials systems revealed a A Progressive Damage Methodology for Residual Strength Dec 01, 1999 · The residual strength predictions for different panel widths, notch lengths, and material systems were in reasonable agreement to the experimental failure loads. Keywords composites , damage , matrix cracks , fiber fracture , internal state variable , residual strength Comparative Study of Phenomenological Residual Oct 17, 2019 · Residual strength models also comply with experimental evidence showing that a fatigue limit seems unlikely in composite materials or irrelevant in the range of cycles encountered in practical applications, meaning the slope of SN curves should remain always negative.
The most popular methods of characterizing a composite’s fatigue properties and predicting its life are phenomenological, meaning the micro-mechanisms of composite structures under cyclic loading are not treated. In addition, in order to characterize the fatigue properties, only macro-parameters, namely strength and/or stiffness, are adopted. Residual strength models are mostly used in Fatigue life prediction in compositesComposite material tested and its processing conditions The composite material system used to test the residual strength and residual stiffness models was a unidirectional carbon fibre reinforced epoxy prepreg system, Vicotex 913C-TS, manu- factured by Brochier SA, an affiliate of Ciba-Geigy. Prediction of residual strength of CFRP after impact Nov 01, 2013 · It was found that the residual strength of CFRP after impact decreases as the impact energy increases when the energy is larger than the threshold impact energy. If the impact energy is sufficiently large, the influence of the mass of an impactor on the residual strength of the composite materials can be disregarded.
Abstract. A model for the prediction of residual tensile strength of impacted CFRP laminates is presented and discussed. The damage zone is considered, from the residual strength standpoint, as an equivalent implanted hole, and strength degradation is calculated using a linear elastic fracture mechanics approach previously proposed.

Cantwell, W.J. , P.T. Curtis and J. Morton " An Assessment of the Impact Performance of CFRP Reinforced with High-Stram Carbon Fibres," Composites Science and Technology , 25:133 Residual Tensile Strength Prediction on a Ply-by-Ply Basis A residual strength prediction procedure, proposed previously for laminates containing cut internal fibers, was used here for laminates containing impact damage. The prediction of laminate residual strength was performed based on 3-D finite element results in conjunction with a principal load carry ing ply failure criterion.
Apr 28, 2016 · The effect of drilling-induced delamination on tensile strength and prediction of residual strength of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer laminate Chongcong Tao, Jinhao Qiu, Weixing Yao, and Hongli Ji Journal of Composite Materials 2016 50 :24 , 3373-3384 Verication and prediction of residual strength of C/SiC Figure1shows that the residual strength of the compositechanges with temperature (400700C) without consider-ing matrix cracks. The rate of change in the tensile strengthof the composite with temperature is non-linear for thesame oxidation time (Fig. 1), and the tensile strengthdecreases with both oxidation temperature and time. Theresidual strength of the composite changes with oxidation Verification and prediction of residual strength of C/SiC Sep 03, 2014 · The residual strength of the composite versus oxidation time for different fiber volume fractions at 650 and 800 °C is illustrated in Figs. 15, 16, and 17. The curves representing the change in residual strength as a function of oxidation time for the different fiber

An experimental characterization of several composite materials systems revealed a fracture resistance behavior that was very similar to the R-curve behavior exhibited by ductile metals. Fractographic examinations led to the
