Title

Multi-Scale Modelling of Long-Term Mechanical Behaviour in Polymer Composite Laminates with Woven Fibre Architecture

Abstract

Multi-scale modeling for the prediction of long-term mechanical bahavior in polymer composite laminates with woven fibre architecture was presented. The study showed that the maximum stress concentrations for bending and shear stresses were located in the region of fibre undulations which increased the probability of failure initiation. It was found that the monotonically increasing stress concentrations in the fibre undulation region with time resulted in a delayed failure within the fibres for long-term applications especially in the presence of aggressive environments.
