    • A case for Tsai's Modulus, an invariant-based approach to stiffness 

      Ateiro, Albertino; Sharma, Naresh; Melo, Jose Daniel Diniz; Seneviratne, Waruna P. (Elsevier, 2020-11-15)
      For the past six years, we have been benefiting from the discovery by Tsai and Melo (2014) that the trace of the plane stress stiffness matrix (tr(Q)) of an orthotropic composite is a fundamental and powerful scaling ...
    • Damage mechanisms in tapered composite structures under static and fatigue loading 

      Rao, Prabhakar M.; Gurvich, Mark R.; Palliyaguru, Upul R.; Seneviratne, Waruna P. (DEStech Publications, 2019-09)
      In this work an integrated computational/experimental approach was developed to validate the predictive capabilities of State-of-the-Art (SoA) Progressive Damage Analysis (PDA) methods and tools. Specifically, a tapered ...
