Abstract

The behavior of quasi-isotropic graphite/epoxy laminates with cracks subjected to various biaxial stress fields was studied experimentally. This was accomplished by uniaxial tensile loading of specimens with cracks at various orientations with the loading axis. It was found that the critical stress intensity factor, based on a projected crack length increased by a characteristic damage dimension, is nearly constant with stress biaxiality and initial crack length.
