This paper presents a theoretical approach for predicting transverse cracking behavior in a cross-ply laminate with a thick transverse ply under variable amplitude loads for which the cracks grow instantaneously, or very quickly, across the specimen width. The transverse crack density was derived on the basis of the slow crack growth (SCG) concept using the Paris law in conjunction with the Weibull distribution for a brittle material subjected to multi-stage cyclic loading. A fracture criterion obtained was related with the empirical rules by Miner and Broutman & Sahu. Next, the probabilistic SCG model was applied to transverse cracking in a cross-ply laminate under multi-stage cyclic loading. The two-stage fatigue tests with various loading sequences and amplitudes were conducted for carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) cross-ply laminates in addition to single-stage fatigue tests for various maximum stresses. The experiment results were compared with the predictions to verify the validity of the model.
