In this paper, experimental and finite element results are presented to describe the anisotropic states of stress, strain and damage of unidirectional graphite/epoxy composite plates containing a central hole subjected to off-axis uniaxial tension. The nonlinear stress analysis of the laminates...
A programme of tests has been conducted to characterise the strength reduction of three GRP composite materials as a function of temperature and testing environment. The GRP materials and testing environments were selected to be of maximum relevance to the offshore industry. The materials were...
A preliminary design tool was developed to optimize structures such as beams and plates, with optional cutouts, subject to multiple loadsets and any boundary conditions. SUNSPOT provides with simple, tapered and manufacturable layups. Sublaminates, made of multiple plies at various orientations,...
Design criteria are essential for describing the objectives of optimization. Strength, stiffness, and manufacturing are addressed. The mechanical criteria, for strength and stiffness, provide with the magnitude by which the thickness of a given laminate must be scaled in order to just meet all...
