Fatigue of composites with in-situ full-field strain measurements
2011 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Light-weight, high stiffness, and high strength are among many properties which make composites advantageous over other materials. However, the presence of defects, or material flaws, in composites and its effect on the material strength is not well understood to date and can be significant. The central aim of this project is to understand how different types of defects may affect the material properties of fibre reinforced composites. As a first initiative, a novel fatigue test method is developed to study defects and failure modes that normally would not have been perceived in a standard fatigue test setup.
