- ... Discrete damage modelling (DDM) has been used successfully for open-hole composite tensile failure prediction with the aid of Critical Failure Volume (CFV) statistical criteria. The current study considered the chevron feature, a more complex notched geometry that due to its taper has the potential to be used in aerospace design to accommodate small radius notches without a significant strength kn ...

- ... In substantiating the strength of highly-loaded composite structure for aerospace application, consideration must be given to the effect of in-service damage on the residual strength. The same consideration is not given to repaired structure, which may be non-conservative, especially if the aircraft were to have a repair installed early on in the life of type. The current study aims to assess the ...
