Delamination modelling of a curved composite beam subjected to an opening bending moment

Wang, W. and Shenoi, R.A. (2003) Delamination modelling of a curved composite beam subjected to an opening bending moment The Journal of Strain Analysis for Engineering Design, 38, (5), pp. 453-457. (doi:10.1243/03093240360713504).

Record type: Article


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.
