Multi-Directional hybrid composites can suffer from free-edge delamination, a damage mode that doesn't exist in Uni-Directional hybrid composites and can hinder the pseudo-ductility that can be achieved with thin-ply hybrids. This paper presents a ne... Read More about Orientation-dispersed pseudo-ductile hybrid composite laminates – A new lay-up concept to avoid free-edge delamination.
