Description/Abstract

A theoretical approach is developed for the case of delamination of a curved composite beam under an opening bending moment. This is based on linear curved beam theory coupled with fracture mechanics concepts. The general solution is applied to analyse a specific case of delamination occurring at the mid-plane. The effects of the arc angle of delamination crack and the radius of curvature of the beam on the critical load are also studied.
