Abstract:

Basic unidirectional laminae and a simple quasi-isotropic laminate were mechanically tested to failure under tensile and compressive loads. A fractographic investigation of these specimens and specimens made available from arcan shear tests. Mode I and Mode II fracture tests, three-point bend tests and low velocity impact tests was conducted. Procedures for conducting these analyses are defined and emphasize the need for considering information available from macroscopic as well as microscopic considerations. Author, modified-PL.
