Strength of multi-axial laminates with multiple randomly distributed holes
2011 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
Due to the increasing use of fibre reinforced plastics in the construction of naval ship hulls the ballistic and blast performance of these materials has gained particular interest during the past decade
In the present paper we use percolation theory to develop a cost-effective phenomenological residual strength model. The model provides a closed form expression for the residual strength as function of the hole density (the amount of hole area / specimen area). The benefit of this model is that it provides a good first estimate of the residual strength using only one input variable (hole density).
