Abstract

Cut ply specimens of IM7/8552 carbon/epoxy laminates were tested under monotonic and cyclic tensile loading. Experimental results were used to validate new cohesive interface element formulations for static and fatigue delamination. Results are presented in terms of static failure loads and fatigue crack growth rates.
