Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymers (CFRP) are widely used in engineering applications where weight saving and high mechanical performance are key factors. However, an inherent weakness of laminated CFRP:s is their relatively low resistance to delamination. The first part of this thesis is devoted to methods to extract cohesive laws associated with delamination. The method is based on fracture mechanical tests and measurement of the displacement field close to the crack tip. Pure mode cohesive… CONTINUE READING
