Abstract

In the present paper the primary task is the study involving calculation of elastic properties of the composite from the individual properties of the E-glass fiber (650 GSM) and the properties of resin LY 556 with Hardener HY951. The properties of varying volumetric ratio of fiber are obtained from calculation of the properties by using rule of mixtures. Experimentally validating the theoretical and numerical approaches by comparing the load-displacement response and crack paths observed in large scale bridged crack propagation in laminated fiber-reinforced composites specimens. An effort is being made to develop a numerical framework for cohesive crack propagation and demonstrating its effectiveness by simulating failure through crack propagation in materials with complex microstructure like fiber reinforced composites. Experimentally validating the theoretical and numerical approaches by comparing the load-displacement response and crack paths observed in large scale bridged crack propagation in laminated fiber-reinforced composites specimens.
