Statistical approach to evaluate composite damage (design of experiment and evaluation) Conference Paper uri icon


  • The objective of this research is to develop a methodology for combined mechanical and thermal synergistic test for M40J/PMR-II-50 [90/0] s, a uni-tape composite material; and its analysis by using a statistical approach. Four different controlled factors (mechanical strain, temperature range of thermal cycling, number of thermal cycles, and heating rate) which degrade the composite are evaluated in terms of both primary effects and interaction effects quantitatively.
