DESIGN ALLOWABLES SUBSTANTIATION

Designing with composite materials requires knowledge of a significantly greater number of properties than for conventional isotropic metals. The selection of lamina and laminate allowables can be critical in the analysis of a composite structure. However, composite design allowables may not always be obtained from a single source of data. Several references must often be consulted to determine all the properties in the necessary directions, especially if several fibers or matrices are being considered in the design. This can be a time consuming effort, especially during the initial design phase. In addition, some organizations may not have easy access to all the necessary references required to collect the data. This chapter assembles lamina data from numerous sources so that the engineer may have a single reference point for initial design and analysis of composite structures. A broad range of fibers has been included since composites are increasingly being applied outside the aerospace community.
