  • In fiber-reinforced brittle laminates, crack growth under monotonic tension generally consists of crack tunneling along the weaker ply (usually the 90° ply) followed by plane strain crack growth through the adjacent, more resistant plies (the 0° plies). In this paper, the details of this transition in crack mode are examined. The tunneling crack configuration is generalized to allow the crack to penetrate the 0° ply during tunneling. The effects of crack bridging in the 0° plies on the… CONTINUE READING
