Mixed-Mode-Bending Delamination Apparatus
Author and Affiliation:
Crews, John H., Jr.(NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, VA.)
Reeder, James R.(NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, VA.)
Abstract: Mixed-mode-bending delamination apparatus generates two types of delamination stress simultaneously in specimen from single externally applied point load. In technique, indivial mode I and mode II contributions to delamination in specimen analyzed by use of simple beam-theory equations, eliminating need for time-consuming, difficult numerical analysis. Allows wider range of mode I/mode II ratios than possible with many other methods. Mixed-mode delamination testing of interest in all fields utilizing composite materials, used mostly in aerospace field, but also used in automobiles, lightweight armored military vehicles, boats, and sporting equipment. Useful in general lumber, plywood, and adhesive industries, as well.
