An experimental investigation of the impact response and post-impact shear buckling behaviour of hybrid composite laminates (2023)
Journal Article
Damghani, M., Saddler, J., Sammon, E., Atkinson, G. A., Matthews, J., & Murphy, A. (2023). An experimental investigation of the impact response and post-impact shear buckling behaviour of hybrid composite laminates. Composite Structures, 305, 116506. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.compstruct.2022.116506

This paper investigates the effect of transverse impact loading on the in-plane shear behaviour of two laminate configurations. The extensive experimental studies consider a pure carbon laminate (type 1) and a novel X-shaped carbon/glass laminate (ty...

Using laminate hybridisation (CFRP-GFRP) and shaped CFRP plies to increase plate post-buckling strain to failure under shear loading (2021)
Journal Article
Damghani, M., Wallis, C., Bakunowicz, J., & Murphy, A. (2021). Using laminate hybridisation (CFRP-GFRP) and shaped CFRP plies to increase plate post-buckling strain to failure under shear loading. Thin-Walled Structures, 162, Article 107543. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tws.2021.107543

Previous works have established the response and failure behaviour of hybrid (CFRP-GFRP) laminates when subjected to a wide range of destabilising loads. However, to date no works have quantified the influence of selective laminate shapes and hybridi...
