Abstract

The first damage mode to appear in continuous fibre-reinforced composite laminates subjected to in-plane loading is usually transverse cracking, i.e. matrix cracking in the off-Axis plies of the laminate. Since the density of transverse cracks has a great influence on the subsequent failure steps like delaminations, it is important to be able to predict it accurately. In this paper, the evolution of crack density with increasing external load is predicted using a combination of the Coupled Criterion of Finite Fracture Mechanics and the Equivalent Constraint Model.
