Analysis of Failure in Fiber Polymer Laminates: The Theory of Alfred Puck (Engineering Materials and Processes 1st ed. 2008. Corr. 2nd printing 2008)
By: Martin Knops (author)Paperback
4 - 6 days availability
Written by Puck's pupil and appointed successor Martin Knops, this book presents Alfred Puck's failure model, which, among several other theories, predicts fracture limits best and describes the failure phenomena in FRP most realistically - as confirmed within the "World-wide Failure Exercise". Using Puck's model the composite engineer can follow the gradual failure process in a laminate and deduce from the results of the analysis how to improve the laminate design.
Failure of laminates.- Stress and strength analysis: Basics and definitions.- Puck's action plane fracture criteria.- Analysis of the gradual failure process.- Experimental work.- Implementation in software.- Application of Puck's work in industrial practice.- Concluding remarks.
