Modeling the Debonding Behavior of Step-tapered Patches: Analytical Solutions and Numerical Analysis of Selected Structures
American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Materials Division (Publication)
A study was carried out to investigate the initiation of debonding between the patch and the base structure, as well as the extent and stability of the debonding. In particular, the materials selection in the patch were compared. Results for both flat and curved structures are presented, as well as for a range of loading and boundary conditions.
