A statistical model for the prediction of residual strength and fatigue life of composite laminates has been developed on the basis of the statistical nature of fatigue damage and the concept of a representative volume for damage evolution. The representative volume consists of a critical element which defines failure and residual strength and a subcritical element that describes stress distributions associated with progressive damage accumulation. The statistical equation of residual strength… CONTINUE READING
