Damage Tolerance Analysis of a Unidirectional Buffer Strip Laminate Containing a Rectangular Cut-Out
Popelar, C. H.
In the design and use of large composite panels in aircraft structures a major concern is the damage tolerance capability. One very promising technique that has evolved from the stringer reinforced metallic panel is the buffer strip of hybrid panel. The present study considers a method of analysis capable of predicting accurately the stress concentration at and growth/arrest of cracks originating from a rectangular cut-out in a unidirectional composite laminate containing symmetrically place buffer strips.
