Abstract:

In recent years several advanced finite element methods have been developed for the analysis of laminated composites these take into account the membrane, bending, and interlaminar stresses. Similarly, finite element methods have also been developed for the analysis of structures repaired with a bonded overlay of fibre composite material. The present paper discusses these methods and indicates how the finite element method developed for the analysis of structural repairs is connected to those methods specifically developed for the analysis of composite laminates.
