Failure criteria for FRP composites

Chapter


Abstract


  • Two common failure modes exist for FRP composites: intralaminar failure and interlaminar failure. The former occurs within a lamina and the latter occurs at interfaces between laminae. Both failure modes are discussed in this chapter. A computational procedure for the prediction of intralaminar failure is presented. The causes of interlaminar stresses which lead to interlaminar failure in a laminate are also explained.
