Abstract:

This report describes the initial results of an investigation which has as its objectives the determination of the nature of damage in two graphite-epoxy GEp laminates under various combinations of loading as completely and precisely as possible, and the investigation of the corresponding mechanical property changes. The results include several new findings, the development of unique investigative methods, and substantial deviations from the predictions of common models. Author
