Thermoelastic stress analysis of a GRP tee joint

Dulieu-Smith, J.M., Quinn, S., Shenoi, R.A., Read, P.J.C. L. and Moy, S.S.J. (1997) Thermoelastic stress analysis of a GRP tee joint Applied Composite Materials, 4, (5), pp. 283-303. (doi:10.1007/BF02481395).

Record type: Article


A detailed study of the stresses that are developed in a glass reinforced plastic (GRP) tee joint under service loads is described. The joints are fabricated by laminating a boundary angle over a radiused fillet on either side of the ‘tee’. Full-field stress characterisation data is provided by a thermoelastic analysis of the tee joint. Calibration procedures that allow the thermoelastic data to be compared with the results of a finite element analysis are detailed. The results of the thermoelastic analysis are compared with values obtained from the finite element analysis. The applicability of thermoelastic analysis as a validation tool for finite element models of composite materials is assessed
