Abstract

A qualitative study on the influence of an embedded vascular network on the structural performance of a FRP composite laminate is presented. This study includes: methods of forming such vascular networks in laminates; characterisation of laminate cross-sections; FE analysis for failure initiation and validation of the FE results via mechanical testing.
