Using Experimental Test Data In The Analysis Of Laminated Structures

View PDF

Composite material systems have relatively large variation in their measured properties. A typical approach in engineering problems is deterministic, however. Material stiffness and strength, for example, are described with single values in linear-elastic analyses. Physical dimensions of the material, structural and environmental conditions in the laminate or uncertainties in material properties, for instance, require that several discrete definitions are needed for the material specification.
