Abstract

This paper presents a delayed-fracture model for transverse cracking in CFRP cross-ply laminates under static fatigue loading. First, a delayed-fracture model for a crack in a brittle material was established on the basis of the slow crack growth (SCG) concept in conjunction with a probabilistic fracture model using the three-parameter Weibull distribution. Second, the above probabilistic SCG model was applied to transverse cracking in cross-ply laminates under static fatigue loading. The stress and the length of the unit element in the transverse layers were calculated with the aid of a shear-lag analysis, taking the residual stress into account. The transverse crack density was expressed as a function of applied stress and time with the parameters in the Paris law and the Weibull distribution function specified, in addition to the mechanical and geometrical properties. Unknown parameters were determined from experiment data gathered in static tensile and static fatigue tests. The reproduced transverse crack density at various applied loads agreed well with the experiment results.
