Grahic Jump Location
Relation of load and displacement: Line 1—model for h/T=6/24, without contact zone; Line 2—model for h/T=6/24, with contact zone; Line 3—model for h/T=3/24, without contact zone; Line 4—model for h/T=3/24, with contact zone; and Line 5—model without delamination.
Grahic Jump Location
Variation of energy release rate with applied loading: solid line—ratio of energy release rate with contact zone to that without contact zone; dash line—energy release rate with contact zone.
Grahic Jump Location
Applied load, P, versus displacement, δ, at the free end of cantilever beam: solid line—geometric model; dashed line—finite element analysis; and circle—experimental data.
Grahic Jump Location
Ratio of stress intensity factors in mode II to mode I: (a) inner end for h/T=3/24 with contact zone; (b) outer end for h/T=3/24 with contact zone; (c) inner end for h/T=3/24 without contact zone; (d) outer end for h/T=3/24 without contact zone; (e) inner end for h/T=6/24 with contact zone; (f) outer end for h/T=6/24 with contact zone; (g) inner end for h/T=6/24 without contact zone; and (h) outer end for h/T=6/24 without contact zone.
Grahic Jump Location
The variation of stress intensity factor in mode I with loading: (a) mode I, KI; and (b) mode II, KII.
Grahic Jump Location
Trajectory of crack propagation in IM7/8552 graphite/epoxy. Kinking from the 6th /7th to the 5th /6th interface is observed.
