    Open Access
    Fibres Reinforced Polymers (FRPs) are found in several applications in aeronautics, space and in the automotive industry. These applications are exposed to loading conditions, including impact, which results in a complex ...
  • Fatigue prediction of composite materials, based on serial/parallel mixing theory 

    Jurado Granados, Joel; Martínez García, Javier; Barbu, Lucia Gratiela; Capua, Daniel di (2022-03-31)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this work, a numerical procedure to obtain the fatigue performance of composite laminates is proposed. The formulation used is based on the Serial/Parallel Mixing Theory (SP-RoM) and a fatigue damage model. The SP-RoM ...
  • Blind benchmarking of seven longitudinal tensile failure models for two virtual unidirectional composites 

    Breite, Christian; Melnikov, Alexander; Turon Travesa, Albert; de Morais, Alfredo Balacó; Otero Gruer, Fermín Enrique; Mesquita, F; Costa Balanzat, Josep; Mayugo Majó, Joan Andreu; Guerrero García, José María; Gorbatikh, Larissa (2021-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Many models for prediction of longitudinal tensile failure of unidirectional (UD) composites have been developed in the last decades. These models require significant assumptions and simplifications, but their consequences ...
