Title: Fracture, Interlaminar
Issue Date: 2012
Abstract: This chapter is mainly dedicated to describe the most prominent tests for interlaminarfracture characterization of composites under pure (I, II and III) and mixed-mode (I+II,I+III, II+III) loading. Experimental details and difficulties inherent to each test arepresented and discussed. Additionally, the drawbacks of using classical data reductionschemes due to phenomena related to fracture propagation with non negligible fractureprocess zones are emphasized. As a consequence, an alternative data reduction schemebased on crack equivalent concept and specimen compliance is proposed to overcomethe referred difficulties. Some results highlighting the advantages of the proposedmethodology are presented for several of the presented tests.
