Defect Coupling Predicting the Strength and Life of Fiberous Composite Laminates
16 Oct 2020
After more than 30 years of careful experimental investigation and exhaustive development of discrete damage analysis methods including integrated computational mechanics methods, our community knows a great deal about how discrete defects such as matrix cracks and defect growth (e.g....

A Manufacturing Sensitive Design Strategy for Composite Materials Using Physical Modeling and Stochastic Simulation of Defects
02 Oct 2020 | Contributor(s):: Ramesh Talreja
This presentation outlines a strategy for designing composite structures accounting for the presence of defects that are inevitable in a practical manufacturing process. The essential ingredients of the strategy are incorporation of defects in physical models for assessment of composite...
Digital Disruption of Composites Manufacturing and Design
18 Sep 2020 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Anoush Poursartip
Composite materials and structures are an excellent example of how engineering practice often outpaces scientific knowledge. Born in the analog world of the 1960s, carbon-fibre composites manufacturing and design practice is a complex and often fragile construct that is primarily driven by the...
