Interlaminar Fracture Toughness Evaluation in Glass/Epoxy Composites Using Acoustic Emission and Finite Element Methods (2014)
Journal Article
Saeedifar, M., Fotouhi, M., Najafabadi, M. A., & Toudeshky, H. H. (2015). Interlaminar Fracture Toughness Evaluation in Glass/Epoxy Composites Using Acoustic Emission and Finite Element Methods. Journal of Materials Engineering and Performance, 24(1), 373-384. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11665-014-1291-2

© 2014, ASM International. Delamination is one of the most common modes of failure in laminated composites and it leads to the loss of structural strength and stiffness. In this paper, mode I, mode II, and mixed of these pure modes were investigated...

Acoustic emission-based study to characterize the initiation of delamination in composite materials (2014)
Journal Article
Fotouhi, M., & Najafabadi, M. A. (2016). Acoustic emission-based study to characterize the initiation of delamination in composite materials. Journal of Thermoplastic Composite Materials, 29(4), 519-537. https://doi.org/10.1177/0892705713519811

© The Author(s) 2014. Among the failure modes of composite materials, delamination is the most striking one. It may result in the reduction of stiffness and long-term performance of composite materials. The initiation stage is very crucial in delamin...

Damage Classification of Sandwich Composites Using Acoustic Emission Technique and k-means Genetic Algorithm (2014)
Journal Article
Pashmforoush, F., Khamedi, R., Fotouhi, M., Hajikhani, M., & Ahmadi, M. (2014). Damage Classification of Sandwich Composites Using Acoustic Emission Technique and k-means Genetic Algorithm. Journal of Nondestructive Evaluation, 33(4), 481-492. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10921-014-0243-y

© 2014, Springer Science+Business Media New York. In this study acoustic emission (AE) technique was used for monitoring mode I delamination test of sandwich composites. Since, during mode I delamination test various damage mechanisms appear, their c...
