Prediction of the ultimate strength of quasi-isotropic TP-based laminates structures from tensile and compressive fracture toughness at high temperature

Abstract : This paper is intended to test the capacity of a simple model based on fracture mechanics concepts to predict the ultimate strength of notched hybrid carbon and glass fibers woven-ply reinforced PolyEther Ether Ketone (PEEK) thermoplastic (TP) quasi-isotropic (QI) laminates under different temperature conditions. In such materials, translaminar failure is the primary failure mode driven by the breakage of 0° and 45° oriented fibers in tension as well as the formation of kink-band in compression. Single-Edge-Notched Bending (SENB), Open-Hole-Tensile (OHT) and Open-Hole-Compression (OHC) specimens have been conducted at room temperature (RT) and at a temperature higher than the glass transition temperature (Tg). The Critical Damage Growth model derived from the Average Stress Criterion and Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics (LEFM) have been applied to open-hole specimens to determine the critical damage zone from which the fracture toughness in tension (0° and 45° fibers breakage) KIc-tension and in compression (kink-band formation) KIc_comp. are estimated. In Single Edge Notched Bending (SENB) specimens experience simultaneous tension/compression. From the estimation of KIc-tension and KIc_comp., the ultimate strength of SENB specimens can be predicted. LEFM equations combined with the critical fracture toughness in tension give relatively accurate results, suggesting that failure is driven by fibers bundles breakage in tension.
