Integrity of edge-debonded patch on cracked panel

  title={Integrity of edge-debonded patch on cracked panel},
  author={George C. Sih and Teresa B. Hong},
The structural integrity of reinforced cracked panels with patches that are partially damaged is analyzed by assessing the load carrying capacity and failure instability of the system. Two typical types of path edge debonding are considered; they are referred to as collinear and transverse debonding with respect to the crack plane. The former refers to debonding over a region ahead of only one of the crack tips where the load and geometry are symmetric across the crack plane while the latter… CONTINUE READING
