Abstract

The expressions for the strain-energy release rate associated with local delaminations growing from the tips of angle-ply matrix cracks in orthotropic composite laminates loaded in tension are presented. The strain energy release rate and the laminate residual stiffness properties are predicted as functions of matrix-crack density and delamination length.
