Peridynamic Modeling of Fiber-reinforced Composites

Erdogan Madenci, Erkan Oterkus

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In order to investigate the behavior of cracks, Wu [19] considered unidirectional fiberglass-reinforced Scotch-plies with center cracks oriented in the direction of the fibers. The plies had fibers in the 0? and 45? directions and were loaded in tension, pure shear, and combined tension and shear. In all three types of loading, it was observed that the crack propagated in a direction co-linear with the initial crack.
