    Abstract

    Mechanisms of internal damage and their effect on the behavior and properties of cross-ply composite laminates were studied. Experimental and theoretical studies into the damage mechanisms of laminates and their influence on the behavior and stiffness properties of laminates were presented. The equivalent-constraint model was applied to the analysis of cross-ply laminates with transverse and longitudinal matrix cracks and crack-tip delaminations.
