Delamination Arrest by Fasteners in Aircraft Structure Under Static and Fatigue Loading
Laminated composite structures convey tremendous benefits of specific strength and fatigue properties in plane, but are highly susceptible to interlaminar failures such as delaminations and disbonds. The initiation of this failure mode further complicates the design as delaminations initiate along termination points of bonded ...
Experimental and Analytical Study of Delamination Arrest By Multiple Fasteners in Composite Structures
The effectiveness of shifting the failure mode away from delamination by the installation of multiple fasteners in series which arrests and stabilizes mixed mode interlaminar failure in composite structures has been demonstrated through analytical and experimental investigation. Based on the novel mixed mode axially loaded ...
