Linear viscoelastic behavior of matrix cracked cross-ply laminates Academic Article uri icon


  • The linear viscoelastic behavior of matrix cracked symmetric cross-ply laminates is studied. A lower bound solution and an approximate 3D solution to the properties are obtained by using the elastic-viscoelastic correspondence principle. The accuracy of Schapery's approximate Laplace inversion technique in the solution procedure is discussed.
