Abstract When a graphite-epoxy laminate of cross-ply (0/90) lamination is subjected to uniaxial tension, transverse cracks in the 90° ply can be induced at strains as low as 0·3%. These cracks will continue to form in increasing numbers if the applied tension increases. At some late stage of loading, and before the breaking of fibers in the 0° ply, several other matrix-dominant cracking modes may emerge. All seem to be precipitated by the transverse cracks. The late-stage matrix cracks… CONTINUE READING
