Paper Abstract

The fully 3D orthotropic elastic-plastic analysis of interlaminar stresses and deformation for AS4/PEEK thermoplastic laminates is developed in this paper, and used to simulate the tensile stress- strain curves for (+/- 25)s4 laminates. Under uniaxial tensile loading, the 3D orthotropic elastic-plastic FE analysis and microscopic moire interferometry of interlaminar stresses and deformation are carried out for the (+/- 25)s4 laminates. It is found that the numerical tensile stress-strain curves of (+/- 25)s4 laminates agree with experimental. The numerical interlaminar displacement u and shear strain (gamma) xz are also consistent with the experimental results obtained by moire interferometry.
