    • Compressive response of composite laminates with defects 

      Cui, Xiaodong; Karuppiah, Anand Vijay; Pham, Dinh Chi; Lua, Jim Y.; Saathoff, Caleb; Seneviratne, Waruna P. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc, 2020-01-05)
      Defects are inevitable in the manufacture and service of composite laminates and their influence on the mechanical performance of composite laminates can be substantial. Ply waviness and delamination are two major types ...
    • Reduced allowable strength of composite laminate for unknown distribution due to limited tests 

      Zhang, Yiming; Kim, Namho; Palliyaguru, Upul R.; Schutte, Jaco F.; Haftka, Raphael T. (SAGE Publications, 2020-02-06)
      In design under uncertainty, random distributions are often determined by expensive sampling tests. A key question is whether to invest in more samples or live with a reduced performance by fewer samples due to large ...
