Abstract

The singular intensity factors at bimaterial anisotropic interfaces in bonded joints with composite adherends are found by using a hybrid method based on numerical and elasticity solutions. The method is applicable to the solution of problems having complex geometry, loading and boundary conditions, which is the case in typical composite structures. Results are given in terms of the singular intensity factor, which is a generalization of the stress intensity factor commonly used with cracks. Both closed and open wedges, which are found, respectively, in bonded joints with or without adhesive fillets, are considered. Equivalent singular intensity factors in modes I, II and III are defined, and the results indicate that the mode III factor, which arises due to out-of-plane coupling, is negligible in all cases studied. Moreover, use of the Erdogan-Sih failure criterion indicates that the direction of crack propagation in lap joints with fillets remains constant beyond a very small region near the point of singularity, while for joints without fillets crack initiation always occurs in a direction parallel to the adhesive-adherend interface.
