Investigation of the hybrid effect in high performance quasi-isotropic thin-ply carbon/glass composites under tension (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Idarraga, G., Fotouhi, M., Jalalvand, M., J, M., & Wisnom, M. (2019, August). Investigation of the hybrid effect in high performance quasi-isotropic thin-ply carbon/glass composites under tension. Presented at ICCM22

This work studies the hybrid effect in high performance Quasi-Isotropic (QI) composite plates under tensile loading. The hybrid effect is the enhancement in strain at failure of the carbon fibre layers in the hybrid composite compared with a pure car...

Achieving gradual failure in hybrid composite laminates- progressing from tension to beding (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Jalalvand, M., Idarraga, G., Fotouhi, M., Meza, J., & Wisnom, M. (2019, August). Achieving gradual failure in hybrid composite laminates- progressing from tension to beding. Presented at ICCM22

Most of the progress to-date about achieving gradual failure have been mainly focused on in-plane loading and particularly tension. In many real structural applications, the load is not pure in-plane and is a mix of in-plane and transverse. One of th...
