Abstract:

A number of authors have employed shear lag theory to find the stress distribution near cracks in a uniaxially reinforced composite. Practical application of these equations has been hampered by the fact that they include a parameter hd the magnitude of which is unknown. This parameter is evaluated for composites in which the fibers forms a rectangular array. Author
