Abstract:

This design manual is directed toward the needs of practicing engineers and stress analysts. Basic information on the philosophy and theory of the fracture mechanics of composite materials including such topics as common definitions, elastic solutions, damage zone effects, and fracture toughness testing are included. However, the major emphasis is placed on applications. Several techniques and the most applicable solutions presently available for use in the fracture mechanics of composite materials are documented with details covering their application and accuracy.
