Abstract:

This paper describes a finite element method for analysing the behaviour of flaws in thn fibre composite sheets which are required with a bonded velocity. The method is an extension of the authors previous work on the repair of metal structures. As illustrative examples the repair of a hole and a crack in various graphiteepoxy laminates is discussed and it is shown that in each case a bonded overlay of either boronepoxy or titanium provides effective repair.
