A [90/0]s composite laminate with part-through matrix cracks in adjacent plies
A [90/0]s orthotropic composite laminate with part-through matrix cracks is considered. Stress intensity factors are determined for the cracks using a linear-elastic analysis. These matrix cracks run along the fiber direction of the individual plies. The crack-geometry considered here is one where t...
