Abstract

The mechanical behavior of a composite laminate is influenced by preexisting residual stresses. Lamination residual stresses in angle-ply laminates are produced during curing as a result of the anisotropic thermal deformations of the variously oriented plies. They are a function of many parameters, such as type of fiber and matrix, fiber volume ratio, ply orientation, curing temperature and other variables. The paper describes the experimental determination of the magnitude of residual stresses in angle-ply graphite fiber laminates.
