Abstract:

An interpretative review of the recent technical literature is presented in the areas of characterization and failure phenomena in fiber reinforced composite materials. Following a brief introduction, Section II reviews the material characterization problem within the context of linear anistropic and nonlinear viscoelastic theory. Section III presents a summary of failure theories in fiber reinforced composite materials, with emphasis being given to continuum and to statistical approaches. Each section is followed by a list of references, and the Appendix contains an additional 85 bibliographic references conjugate to Section III. Author
