On the correlation between stiffness and strength properties of anisotropic laminates
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
This paper focuses on the analytical formulation of a tensorial laminate-level failure criterion. The criterion is formulated and expressed in the framework of the first-order shear deformation theory (FSDT) in order to take into account the influence of the transverse shear stresses on the failure mechanisms. More precisely the most common polynomial ply-level failure criteria (expressed under a unified matrix formulation) are considered and reformulated at the laminate level. The proposed unified formulation relies on the utilisation of the polar formalism gener- alised to the FSDT framework. Through this approach all the considered criteria can be formulated in terms of tensor invariants. Furthermore, thanks to the polar representation, an important theoretical result is proven: the existence of a set of analytical relationships between the laminate strength and stiffness invariants.

A multi-scale approach for the simultaneous shape and material optimisation of sandwich panels with cellular core MONTEMURRO, Marco; CATAPANO, Anita; DOROSZEWSKI, Dominique (Elsevier, 2016)This work deals with the problem of the optimum design of a sandwich panel made of carbon-epoxy skins and a metallic cellular core. The proposed design strategy is a multi-scale numerical optimisation procedure that does ...
On the effective integration of manufacturability constraints within the multi-scale methodology for designing variable angle-tow laminates MONTEMURRO, Marco; CATAPANO, Anita (Elsevier, 2017)In this work a multi-scale two-level (MS2L) optimisation strategy for optimising VAT composites is presented. In the framework of the MS2L methodology, the design problem is split and solved into two steps. At the first ...
