The effect of angle and thickness of plies are investigated on the fracture energy release rate (ERR) in mode II of carbon/epoxy prepreg laminated composites using finite element modelling. The ply's angle of = 0 o , 22.5 o , 30 o , 45 o , 60 o , and 90 o with 4 different thicknesses are investigated. The finite element modelling is done using the...
Article
Residual stresses are balanced, non-uniform, undesirable, and often harmful in laminated polymer composite materials. Different methods are developed to measure these stresses in composites. In this manuscript, three experimental measurement methods, namely ‘hole drilling’, ‘slitting’, and ‘curvature’ methods, are considered, and the results are co...
