Mode-II delamination properties of thick glass-fiber/epoxy composite laminates using end-loaded split experiments
The data shows the experimental results for Mode-II fracture properties of glass-fiber/epoxy composite laminates, which consist of 14 layers of continuous filament mats and 6 layers of quadriaxial sewed fabrics. The experiments were conducted using an end-loaded split testing apparatus according to the standard ISO 15114:2014, and the results were processed using the experimental compliance method with correction factors considered. Note the crack length measurements include microcracking-zone length. Due to the transverse shear effects from the large thickness and the asymmetric fiber layup of the sub-laminates, the R-curves derived contain certain errors.
