Abstract

First-ply failure (FPF) of composite thin-walled columns and frames is investigated in the buckled structure. Elastic behavior is assumed during the pre-buckling and buckling states, and along part of the post-buckling equilibrium path. The Tsai-Hill criterion is employed to identify failure of one ply at one specific location. The technique of analysis is… (More)
